Arrive at Haridwar and drive approximately for 7-8 hours through the picturesque Garhwal Himalayas to reach Auli, our skiing destination. Refresh at the comfortable guest house.
Day 02: Auli (Skiing)
Have an early breakfast and get to know your skiing instructors. They are there to make sure that you understand the basics of skiing that you are going to need during the course. On this day, you slide, slip, fall, bump into trees but end up having a lot of fun. It’s like learning to walk all over again. You also learn some key sliding techniques on the snow. After an eventful session, you realize that you learn the most from your falls.
Day 03: Learn to Stand
This day is more or less the same as Day 02. You receive instructions and you try to learn to balance on the skis. Due to all the training, you will now be able to stand and balance on the skis and also apply brakes on your own. The first few rounds are usually full of crash landings at the end of the slope and also marked by many falls.
Day 04: Skiing Lessons – Runs and Turns
This is the day to put your practice to use and move forward, literally, on a gentle slope. Perfect your parallel turns and snow plough turns. The snow-plough is a braking and turning skiing technique that beginners are taught.
Day 05: Skiing Lessons at Advance Slopes
This is your final day of skiing and now you can show-off all the skills learnt during the previous days. You are taken on an advanced slope which is much longer than the previous slopes. A lot of speed is gained while sliding on this slope. The instructor is with you throughout to guide and help you perfect your ski runs. Once this is accomplished, you are honored with a certificate of appreciation.
Day 06: Return to Haridwar
After an extensive skiing program, you travel back to Haridwar with memories that would last a lifetime.
