In the region of Kashmir in the far north of India you’ll find one of the world’s most majestic skiing areas and the home of Gulmarg, a ski resort that sits like a high alpine table in the Himalaya Mountain Range. Gulmarg Ski Resort is quickly becoming one of the world’s new favorite ski destinations, known for untracked powder, unique cultural experiences and epic skiing adventures far from the crowds found in the world’s leading resorts.

Apharwat which towers over the village providing perfect terrain for every ability level, or choose a heliski or ski tour trip to access the higher peaks of the Pir Pankajl Mountains. No matter where you choose to ski or ride you can count on an abundance of fresh untracked powder at Gulmarg.
