“Skiing in Indian Himalayas”
There are many beautiful skiing slopes in Indian Himalayas, some of them are Manali (Himachal Pradesh) , Auli (In UttaranchalHimalayas) and Dayara Bughyal (Uttaranchal) , every year a number of tourist come to ski and snowboard in this region.
Auli known as famous Skiing Sports in all over world and it is one of the most Important Skies resorts in India, as well as developing a great business in winter season. At an altitude of 2500 – 3050 m. above sea level, it offers exciting skiing opportunities to both beginners as well as professional skiers. Skiers will enjoy the slopes of Auli for the excitement it offers of unexplored terrain and spectacular beauty of the Garhwal Himalayas…
Auli 10 Kms motor road from Joshimath is the best-equipped center for ski resorts in India. It is connected to Joshimath by a 3.5 km long cable car; it provides an excellent panoramic view of the mountain peaks like Nanda Devi, Kamet and Dronagiri. From January to March, the Auli slopes are usually covered with a thick carpet of snow, about 3m deep. The stretch of 3-kms with a drop in elevation of 500m is considered to be a very good skiing ground by international standard. Clean 10-20 km slopes provide excellent opportunities for cross – country and downhill skiing. The resort has a 3 km long slope ranging from a height of 2519m to 3049m, which is its major attraction. Snow beaters are utilized to keep the slopes in good shape all the time. A ski lift carries skiers back to the top of the slope saving them a long 500m walk. Don’t expect much by way of apres-ski, though.
