/ Ski Mountaineering India
I am not too bothered about peaks over 7000m as quite frankly they are bloody hard work and would take much longer to acclimatise to.
I appreciate this post is a bit vague to say the least as I have no idea about the names and areas of the Indian Himalaya but would love to visit and get some turns in.
Any advise on times of year, logistics, areas and anything else related would be greatly appreciated.
Not been, but wanted to a few years ago...
Spring is the time to go.
I bought a book by Spooner ' Ski Touring India's Kullu Valley'.
A few clues to areas on this page http://www.above14000ft.com/himalaya-ski-touring/
Another suggestion would be Gulmarg, I've not been but it's in Cashmere and there is a lift there which makes me think there maybe more on offer and locals who would be able to point you in the right direction.
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.
