The skiing season in
Gulmarg usually commences before Christmas (around middle of
December) and continues till middle of April. In January-February,
1998 the first National Winter Games of India were held at Gulmarg,
for which the facilities were enormously improved and upgraded. The
resort acquired two Kasse Bohrer snow beating machines used for
preparing skiing slopes, and five snowmobiles, which can be made
available for going up the mountain. Good quality equipment,
including skis, boots, sticks, gloves and goggles are available on
hire on the spot from the Government-run ski shop. There are also
trained instructors available for guiding the tourists. Gulmarg is
ideally suited for learning skiing, as it is probably the cheapest
ski resort in the world.
