Gulmarg Backcountry Skiing


The weather in January and February in Gulmarg is similar to Utah’s weather in the USA. It has 2-3 day storms separated by 3-5 days fine spells. It doesn’t traditionally get much wind, so the powder is exceptional. During clear weather the snow just gets better and better, usually stabilising so we can ski steeper runs. One of the biggest benefits of skiing in Gulmarg is there is always skiing to be done. It’s an incredible place and storms of over a metre of snow are common.

Avalanche Conditions

Your guides make morning and on going avalanche assessments and instruction is given on how to contribute to this decision making process. We will probably only ever ski beyond the ski area’s small boundary and each member must be capable of assisting in an avalanche rescue. We all ski with avalanche transceivers, shovel and probe.
