Heliskiing In Kashmir

The introduction of new adventure sport, called Heli-skiing, in 1987-88, added a new dimension to the winter  tourism of the state. 

Heli-skiing consists of being dropped by a helicopter on the summit of a high, snow- covered peak and then skiing down the slopes.  The helicopter transports skiers from the base (Gulmarg) to heights of over 4,500 m landing on a different peak every day, whether it is Apharwat, Yusmarg or the Kolahai glacier.  In Kashmir there is already a well organised central Gulmarg Ski institute conducting ski courses and competitions

It is the second place in the world, after Canada, to offer large scale heli- skiing. The construction of a 7.5Km long gondola cable car ropeway from Gulmarg to Apharwat, which began in April 1988, has also contributed to Kashmir becoming a year-round destination.

Gulmarg also offers heliskiing for winter sports lovers. It is Asia's only heliskiing resort and in fact after Canada, Kashmir is the best option for those inclined towards heliskiing

Heliskiing in Kashmir can be a breathtaking experience. Heliskiing is the ultimate winter sports thrill for the adventure sports lover. This extreme winter sport has some element of risk but the thrill experienced while indulging in heliskiing is said to be unequalled by any other winter sport.
