Thanks to the topography of our country, snow is unknown for most states and is blessed to a few. Himachal is one such region. Its altitude, climate and conditions make it most appropriate for skiing and snowboarding. If you’ve ever imagined yourself replicating some action packed scenes from James Bond movies or Inception, Himachal is one place that will take you closest to live your dramatic dreams with its skiing activities. From almost an altitude of 9,000 feet, you will glide down a terrain that is crisp and a location that is all white and dark. Sudden plunges as high as 500 feet will leave you in euphoria for what just happened and make you scream in bliss. Skiing in Himachal is not to be missed.
