Gulmarg Freeride Skiing
Tucked up close to the foothills of the Himalaya, Gulmarg was well known to the British for its fine summer atmosphere. Meaning the Meadow of Flowers, Gulmarg has since became a hot spot for freeride skiers with its lift to 4000 meters.
I will be there again from January 24 – February 8, 2015. Skiing off the top Gondola at 4000 meters offers a stunning 1000 meter drop through a variety of wide couloirs and bowls. From the mid-staion at 3000 meters, one can ski through the lower pine forests through the ancient village of Drang and down to Tanmarg. Skiing the “Paper Trees” offers a magical touch to an already enchanting experience. Life in Gulmarg is certainly one of the reasons for coming. We will have a blast teaming up with Paolo Tassi, guida alpina di Cortina, John Falkiner, mayor of Gulmarg, and Wild Bill. More photos from 2010 are here. and from 2011. The price is €2’000.00 which includes everything from your arrival in Srinagar, Kashmir: hotel accommodation with half board, lift passes, airport transfers, taxis and my daily guiding.
