Gulmarg is a small town in Pirpanjal range of Himalayas. The town is situated at 2650 meter from sea level and has Mount Apharwat in backyard which has a summit at 4200 meters. Mount Apharwat is a primary mountain with majority of slops for skiing and snowboarding. Gulmarg gondola which is among world highest gondolas goes all the way up to 4000 meters near Apharwat summit. This means a whopping 1350 meters of vertical rise from Gondola starting point to end point.

Gulmarg ski resort offers all kind of terrains for skiing – from groomed run to deep powder backcountry run. The snow conditions remain good for very long period and the experience to ski in this Himalayan town is very different from any other ski resort. The virtually unlimited runs of this ski resort will keep calling you year after year for very long. Check out our gallery for more fun.


As you all know that a good guide is one who is well trained, well experienced, snow safety expert, good communicator and skilled with advance techniques. And when it comes to backcountry he must know the mountain like his home. We are proud to say that all our guides qualify in above mention criteria and they not only qualify but surpass it with some margins. All our guides are local and they are skiing in these mountains since their childhood.

Snowkings guides are good rescuer, searcher and observer. They are trained by American Institute of Avalanche and Research Education (AIARE) and currently they have level 1 and level 2 Avalanche skills Certifications.


We at snowkings make everyday observation about avalanche and snow condition before going on mountain. We use weather forecasts, snow stability test via digging snow pits and communication with ski patrol of Gulmarg to determine the expected conditions on mountain.  

We have all the equipment’s with latest technologies which a guide should have like Beacons, Probes, Shovels, Avalaung and Airbags.

In Gulmarg there are limited well experienced guides and six of them are working with Snowkings who are well trained, experienced and qualified in both skiing and educations skills.
