Description

Region :- Joshimath, Uttarakhand

Grade :- Easy to Moderate

Max Altitude :- 11000 Ft.

The Indian Himalayas provide an excellent skiing experience owing to their great height which makes for long descents. The vast open spaces, snow clad mountains and the height of skiing slopes in India are enough to pump up the adrenaline in any ski enthusiast. India's ski resorts are largely confined to the western half of the Himalayas- in Uttarakhand - high enough to get a good cover of snow during the winter months, yet low enough to be easily accessible. For the avid skier, cross-country runs of 10-20 km are now available, with the added advantage of fresh powder snow, away from criss-crossing streams of skiers that overtake the slopes of the European Alps. Because of their height and spread, Garhwal, like other sectors of the Himalayas, offers the thrills of exploratory long distance skiing. The skiing destination: Auli Auli, in the Garhwal Himalayas, is a favourite skiing destination for many not just because of its beautiful glittering slopes but for the nice, clean environment as well. Located around 250 kms away from Rishikesh in Uttarakhand, Auli is a must visit destination if skiing is your passion. The slopes are located at an altitude of almost 2500 to 3000 metres, offering exciting skiing opportunities to both beginners as well as professional skiers.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Choose to wear proper fitting ski boots that will help you keep warm.

  • Don't wear very thick socks or more than one pair, as this will hamper your blood circulation and your feet might become cold again.

  • Wear ski pants instead of jeans or sweatpants.

  • Wear waterproof jackets and gloves.


Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Arrival Auli You will be picked up from Haridwar and after 280 kms drive through the scenic Garhwal Himalayas, you will reach your skiing destination Auli in 7-8 hours. You can relax at the clean and comfortable guest house.

  • Day 2

    Auli (skiing) After an early breakfast, you will be introduced to our experienced skiing instructors. They will ensure that you learn the basics of skiing during the course. You will slip, slide, fall and bang but have a lot of fun. You will learn ‘walking’ all over again, as doing it on snow with skis is a totally different experience. You will also pick up some key sliding techniques over the beautiful snow clad earth. At the end of an eventful session, the most important thing you will understand is learning from your falls.

  • Day 3

    Skiing lessons It’s the day to move ahead. You learn how to move forward on a gentle slope. You will perfect your parallel turns and snow plough turns. The snow plough turn is a braking and turning skiing technique, usually taught to beginners. The front tips of the skis are brought together and the tails pushed wide apart, with the knees rolled inwards slightly. By applying pressure against the snow with the edges of the skis, speed is reduced and the skier can stop completely.

Your instructor will be with you for the entire duration to help you perfect your ski runs.

  • Day 6

    Return to Haridwar After an extensive learning program, you plan your trip back. We’re sure your freshly carved ski lines will be a part of your most cherished memories. And you’ll return to experience ice cold winds running through your hair and powdery snow flakes caressing your face, once again.
