Auli is a Ski Resort situated at about 10000 ft asl at Auli at 250 kms from Rishikesh and 500 kms from Delhi. During Jan-March, Auli gets converted into a full fledged skiing destination.
It is accessed via a spectacular cable car ride from Joshimath. The Govt. Institute here runs 1 week and two weeks ski training certification courses. Ski lifts, snow beaters, certified instructors, quality equipment and very good ski slopes makes for a very good ski resort despite its relative inaccessibility (No Airport in 300 kms vicinity and hilly terrain).
Note: Indifferent snowfall since 2006 season interrupted skiing during Jan-March period. So check the snow levels before planning the dates.
Recommended Stay Duration: 3-4 nights
