Gulmarg 2010 trip – preview

Many of you might know that I was meant to have been and returned from my off piste snowboarding trip to Gulmarg, Kashmir.

This relatively unknown powder playground in the Himalayas, has this year had the worst snowfall in 15 years, so I delayed the trip until the 6th Feb.

The one lift goes from 2500M up to 4000M high.

Here is link to article in yesterdays Observer Newspaper all about the place and a lovely couple of pics.

Also, small video of “small” avalanche last Saturday.  (It finally started snowing….. now only if it will stop now just before I arrive on Sunday!)

Hopefully I’ll be back in one piece on 17th Feb.
