India's ski resorts are largely confined to the western half of the Himalayas- in Uttarakhand - high enough to get a good cover of snow during the winter months, yet low enough to be easily accessible.

For the avid skier, cross-country runs of 10-20 km are now available, with the added advantage of fresh powder snow, away from criss-crossing streams of skiers that overtake the slopes of the European Alps. Because of their height and spread, Garhwal, like other sectors of the Himalayas, offers the thrills of exploratory long distance skiing.
