  • How safe is skiing?
    Skiing is safer than you think. If you follow safety guidelines and ski with a trainer/ experienced buddy, you will be fine. It is also important to check weather conditions before heading out especially to the higher slopes.
  • Will I be skiing alone?
    No. Your ski trainer will be with you at all times. Even for intermediate skiers, we always recommend skiing with a buddy.
  • How many hours will I be skiing in a day?
    A typical day of skiing is from 10am-4pm. You can buy lunch on the slopes.
  • How do I reach Gulmarg?
    Best way to reach is by taking a flight to Srinagar. We will pick you up from the airport.
  • I have children. Can they ski?
    Absolutely. Children pick up skiing much faster than adults. Ideal age to start is 4 years +.
  • What about meals?
    Meals aren't a part of the course. But Gulmarg has plenty of options from 5star dining to cafes/ local dhabas where you can buy a meal from Rs.100-500. We will give you recommendations on where to eat.
  • What are the things need to carry?
    We will provide you the essential gears for your sport. And once you book a package with us we will send you a confirmation email & a packing guide for your trip.
