Skiing, the thrill of racing down a slope with icy winds rushing at you is an adventure sport which one will return to winter after winter, asking for more. Himachal is one of the few places in the country where this exciting sport is played.
Himachal Tourism offers ski courses, instruction and has equipment on hire at Narkanda. In Manali, the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports conducts professional and amateur skiing courses on the slopes of Solang Nala, Rohtang Pass and Hanuman Tibba. Several private operators also do conduct recreational skiing for tourists.
Kufri, near Shimla, is one of the oldest places in India where skiing is done. Rushing down the Mahasu Peak slopes with ski’s in Kufri is a tourist’s delight.
