Terrain Poma

The Gulmarg Gondola terrain pomas provide an excellent variety of wide open beginner and intermediate practice terrain for skiing in Gulmarg. Kashmir Gulmarg's five short poma surface lifts are located on back-to-back slopes overlooking the snow blanketed golf course. The area is the venue for Gulmarg's ski school and race clinics.

The Terrain Pomas slopes for skiing in gulmarg are a few hundred metres walk from the Gondola, and can be a handy way of visiting the Hotel Highlands Park or the Golf Club, which are both located further along the golf course. In previous winters the pomas were not open to snowboarders, due to the resort's experience of "derailings" involving novice boarders. The Terrain Pomas slopes are groomed on a regular basis by Gulmarg's modern Kassbohrer machines.

The Golf course in Kashmir Gulmarg which is one of the world's highest, is main venue for cross country ski training and racing. Even more exquisite are the eleven kilometres of summer walking tracks built in British colonial times used for cross country terrain. These include forest pathways rimming Gulmarg's mountain shelf with Gulmarg Gondala beautiful views of both the valley below and surrounding mountains. Modern cross-country ski gear is available from the government hire shop.
