The Oncoming Skiing Season

December is just about to begin. In another month's time, it will start snowing in the Himalayas, and it will be time to pack the skis and head to the snowy slopes. And the time to plan the dates, book your ski lodge, is now. Here is a list of popular skiing destinations in India.

Auli. The slopes here are good and are especially friendly for beginners. This is also one of the least expensive places to ski in India, and probably in the entire world. Run by GMVN - an organization that belongs to Uttaranchal Government, you can spend your days skiing here on your own or taking one of the courses offered by GMVN. The downside about Auli? Snow conditions are unpredictable, and some years can go competely dry. GMVN rarely gives you proper information on snow conditions, and you might end up on a day when there is little snow and the lifts are not operating. See GMVN website for more details.


Gulmarg. Some of the best slopes and best skiing infrastructure is found here. Snow conditions are usually reliable. A bit more expensive in comparison with Auli, but still worth the money for the slopes and facilities. The skiing season here also lasts longer than Auli. More details here.

Manali. Solang Nala near Manali is not exactly a destination for serious skiers, but nevertheless, seems to have some popularity. The long slopes lack a lift, making it too much ordeal or carrying your skis up for few minutes of fun. A good infrastructure in place here would really make things better.

Others. There are a few other places where you can ski, but the infrastructure and snow conditions are not very good. Such places include Kufri, Narkanda and Munsiyari. These places are more like an attraction for casual tourists than for serious ski enthusiasts.
