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.
