Heli skiing depends a lot on the weather conditions and the daily avalanche risk.
You’re going to ride the mighty Himalayas!!!
However on non-flying days you don’t need to sit around in your hotel having beer or coffee the whole day (although you can ;-)). We do have the possibilities to take you free skiing and / or snowboarding in Gulmarg on days when the weather is not cooperating for heli skiing. Gulmarg has one of the highest gondola and ski lift which gives access to Mt. Apharwat. There are two phases; the 1st phase gives you access up to 3.300 meters and the 2nd phase goes up to 4.200 meters. In addition there’s one chair lift on stormy days when the top section of the gondola remains closed. It gives access upto 3.600 metres. You will be riding the powder ot the Himalayas the full day with our guide while the lift ticket is provided.
Free ski the Himalayas and explore the local culture of Kashmir
Another option on non flying days is given by our Gipsy King. A very reliable and decent four wheel drive. It’ll give you access to ski down to some local villages. For e.g. down to the valleys and villages like Baba reshi, Tangmarg or the Drang Valley, just to name a few. Those village runs are up to 700 vertical meters and include forests and tree runs which are of course naturally untouched. The gaps between the trees look like a giant slalom course. You can do 8 – 10 runs a day by using one of our four wheel drive with chains on tires. If you want to do some additional exercise like ski- or snowboard-touring to Monkey hill, which is a 30 minute hike, we will provide you all touring gear including touring skis, split boards, snow shoes from our ski shop, this is all of course free of charge.
Apart from our fantastic options on non-flying-days we offer you a fair and guaranteed refund-policy when you come Heli skiing in the Himalayas with us!
