Previously inaccessible to tourists, the virgin slopes of Kashmir offer a fresh and exciting alternative to the well-trodden pistes of the Rockies and the Alps.
The entirely new ski resort of Gulmag in northern India offers an organic skiing experience unlike any other. From the peak of the world’s largest gondola at a height of 13,400 feet, you can absorb breath taking views before carving your skies into the pine littered slopes that are as daunting as they are rewarding.
The resort’s private helicopter service will take you to the remote corners of the Himalayas where you can fly down uncharted slopes without a soul in sight save for the wildlife ranging from snow leopards to eagles.
This secluded resort is so far removed from the typical tourism ski spots that its pure white blanketed slopes offer some of the most adrenaline fuelled thrill rides around. Explore new terrain with an intoxicating mix of beautiful landscapes and a serene environment contradicted by some of the fastest and most challenging yet adventurous skiing you are liable to encounter anywhere in the world.
