Post diving, get back to the hotel, shower and spend the day at leisure. Explore the local shops, visit the nearby shops, scooty around the coastline or simply hang around and soak in the chilled out vibe of Havelock. There are plenty of cafes serving great food and some with live music too :)
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.
