Your stay in Gulmarg will make you realize that skiing is not just for professionals and ski snobs but also for those of us who can't make out one end of the ski from the other. Under the expert guidance of the ski-instructors here your nervousness and high expectations will eventually get blended into confidence.
Apharwat, Khilanmarg, and Kongdori peaks are for more advanced skiers. From Gulmarg you board the Gondola to Kongdoori, this constitutes Phase 1. From Kongdoori to Apharwat is Phase 2.
There are well groomed slopes, resort skiing, for beginners and intermediates. After you have mastered them you can easily move on to the First phase of the Gondola. The ski run from Kongdoori is approximately 3 kms of groomed piste or ski run. From Apharwat, steep powder bowls stretch across the range, offering 1,000 meter vertical runs, not to mention skiing off the highest gondola in the world at nearly 4,000 meters altitude.

The feeling of lightness and grace, as you slash through untracked snow and the exhilaration of dropping into effortless runs, followed by a hot meal, warm brandy and a feather pillow is incomparable.
