Fun Skiing

With the crowd thronging the ski slopes of Gulmarg and Manali every winter, Uttarakhand remains an untouched territory by the ski community. No doubt the land lacks chair lifts and mechanical assistance, it is, however, one of the best places to try your hand at backcountry skiing. Although back country skiing is still new in India, the chances to explore this adrenaline pumping sport are many.

True backcountry riding normally begins somewhere other than a well groomed ski area and requires human-powered ascent. The trails are often unmarked as well as unpatrolled.
