Boarding in Kashmir

Someone mentioned I should post a few pics from my recent trip to the wilds of Northern India.

I went to experience amazing powder and terrain on a week long snowboarding / skiing trip. My adventurous Dad  came along with me for company.

We stayed at the Hotel Heevan in Gulmarg. Electricity, Hot water and heating were infrequent but food was nice and people very friendly.

Amazing experience, with some great runs in the trees all week. The top of mountain was shut whilst we were there due to very dangerous conditions. A Massive avalanche killed 18 Indian soldiers training in the mountain the day after we arrived. Happy to be back safe and sound.

We were there with Ski Himalaya who provided great local guides.
