One of our team members will pick you up from the Srinagar airport and escort you to Gulmarg. The drive through the valley is gorgeous. Once in Gulmarg, we will check you into one of our partner resorts.
You will be assigned an instructor, who will ensure that you learn the basics of skiing in the next few days. He will be with you on the slopes throughout.
Skiing lessons would begin early in the morning. Right from balancing on skis to slow speed, short ski runs to snow plow technique – you will be taught a number of basic skills required for skiing.
Our instructor will take you to the advance slope (close to the beginner slope) where you will perfect your parallel turns and other turning techniques. This slope is much longer than the beginner slope, and you will definitely gain a lot of speed while coming down. Your instructor will be with you for the entire duration to help you perfect your ski runs.
You will attempt to run the phase 1/ chair lift with your instructor. The chair lift run is difficult and involves powder skiing. This run will be done only if your instructor approves of the same. This will depend on your fitness and skill.
Bid adieu to Gulmarg as we take you back to Srinagar.
