SKIING IN KASHMIR

The large meadow of Gulmarg is 52 km south-west of Srinagar at 2730 metres. The name means Meadow of Flowers and in spring it's just that. This is also an excellent trekking base. In winter it used to be India's premier skiing resort, until the activities of the militants frightened off the tourists. The skiing equipment available was fairly good and the costs very low. The area was also wonderful for ski-touring although very little cross-country equipment was available.
Gulmarg can get pretty cold at times, even compared to Pahalgam, so come prepared with plenty of warm clothes. In 1995, the hotels and ski-lifts here remained closed. The following information is included in the hope that  the situation may improve.
Skiing 
There is one chairlift, one T-bar, four pomas and a cable car to the top of Mt Apharwat. The slopes vary from beginner to intermediate and equipment could be hired cheaply. All lifts operated from 10 am to 5 pm, closing for one hour at launch.
