2.5-3 meters fell in this storm, 4m at the top of the mountain



looking skiiers right of the gondola, all this terrain is accesable without hopinh off your board, you can ride right along the ridgeline.



skinning up while the gondola was closed due to ski patrol work



Down the drung bowls to the drung... every skiiers right bowl runs down here, one mean terrain trap.



taking a break



More shokat porn



A trip way out over the back



to a place called great white... steeper then she looks



My track is the one that exits in the bottom left of the shot

Holy freaking Jesus, really?! Can you post what hotels, car rental company, restuarants, ski resorts (if that's what it was), you used?


Looks like a grand 'ole time.

Its on the kashmir/pakistan border which is a war zone. There is no such thing as car rentals, or ski resorts. restuarants and hotels are what the town is basically made up of as it is a tourist spot for indians in the summer. You just show up and get prices from all the places and divide what they ask for by 2, i was splitting NZ$25 a night for three bed room but you can stay at proper upmarket places for US$100 if you are so inclined. Its one gondola that goes from 2600 meters up to 4000 meters (8500 to 13000 feet) that gives you access to more terrain then you will ever need, but its all unpatrolled (except one bowl) so you need avalanche training and experience as it is one huge as shit mountain range.
