Skiing in Himachal

about adventure tour
Skiing has acquired a special place in Himachal Pradesh tourism. In few years skiing has acquired a special place in Himachal Pradesh tourism. The hills of Himachal Pradesh have all the ingredients for adventure, packed with excitement and thrills, and lots of unexplored valleys, towering peaks and snow-capped mountains and glaciers. Skiing is available in the area bound by Hanuman Tibba, Rohtang Pass, Deo Tibba and Chanderkhani Pass near the resort town of Manali (Kullu). A sortie of ten minutes can carry the skiers to the top of a 14000 feet high slope.

 

Kufri

This ski station near Shimla is one of the oldest places in India to be associated with skiing and the slopes are still in use during winter. Above Kufri, the Mahasu ridge also has good slopes.

 

Heli-Skiing

For high mountain thrills perhaps nothing can surpass the magic of heli-skiing. Under a deep blue sky, you are carried by a helicopter to a snow-draped peak. And after that there is nothing except steadily distancing whirr of rotor blades, the sky and the snow. It is a thrilling experience as you rapidly zoom down the slopes. The icy wind slaps your face and the swiftly slithering hiss of skies reminds you that you are racing away on your own steam.
