From early January till around mid of March you’ll get the amazing dry powder snow. During that time, the weather conditions offer us very cold nights with temperatures down below – 25° C and weekly intense snowstorms. This combination plus the degree of latitude on 35° in the northern hemisphere leads to clear blue sky and the unique powder snow. The season here in Gulmarg generally starts in January and lasts till the end of March. The clouds responsible for the snow storms come in from the Arabian Sea and hit the Pir Panjal Range of our Himalayas from the southern direction, where Gulmarg ski resort is located.
Bad weather days
No worries on bad weather days; from Gulmarg (elevation of 2.600 meters) you can ski down to villages like barba reshi which is settled on 2.000 meters. Therefore skiing is possible every day no matter what the weather conditions are like plus you’ll get a very unique village experience in the Himalayas. Check out our opportunities on NON-FLYING-DAYS.
