Skiing at Gulmarg
Gulmarg is one of the best ski resorts of Himalayas. The slopes here are of international standards and due to this reason alone skiers from all over the world flock in the winters. Much to the surprise the first National Winter Games were held at Gulmarg, in the year 1998. Khilanmarg, one more skiing resort in the valley, complements the popular one. The ski resort at Gulmarg was established back in 1927 by two army officers and since then things have been coming to surface. The resort is one of the highest lift served ski resort in India. The approximate 2.5 kms slope run with soft powdery surface fuels up the acceleration and the excitement.

Heli Skiing
Now we mean business when we say that Kashmir is the only place that offers the extreme sport heli skiing in India. In fact it is the second destination in the world, after Canada, that gives you this unique experience. Heli skiing gives you an opportunity to be lifted by a chopper/helicopter and dropped on an inaccessible summit. All that follows is the thrill of sliding down the slope. It is one extreme sport and requires a great skill and experience.

Ice Skating
Winters in Kashmir are exhilarating as the temperature drops to zero and below zero degrees. Lakes and pools transform into mere sheets of ice and with your skates on nobody is going to tell you what to do. Ice skating is one more popular adventure sport hosted in the valley. Ice skating rinks are set up at many places and tourists from all over places assemble to participate in the competitions and sometimes for fun. Gulamarg and Pahalgam are two popular destinations for ice skating.

Snow Boarding
Snow boarding, like skiing can be best enjoyed at Gulamarg and Khilan Marg. The slopes are excellent, weather is fine and facilities are available. The tourists however need to bring their snow boards with them.

There are good reason for the tourists and sports lovers to come to Kashmir. First and foremost the slopes and summits are the best in the country and among the best in the world.
