Winter Ski Resort Overview

Ranked 2 of 10 sightseeing in Auli

One of the lesser-known but prominent tourist destinations, Auli is heaven for ski lovers. With mountain slopes providing an astounding view, this resort is lined with oak and deodar trees alongside and is an overall package that one looks for in an adventure trip.

Watch the competitors perform, ski to your heart’s content or simply find peace in the residential areas – the winter ski resort has something for everyone. Some of the slopes of Auli are perched as high as 3000 metres, making it an ideal spot for skiing. From January to April, the slopes are usually covered with a 3-metre thick carpet of snow, making it one of the best places for skiing in the country as per international standards.

During snowfall, the mountain slopes are an attractive sight to behold and simply admire the beauty of creation. Besides skiing, it is also a ground for thrilling water sports which make it a paradise for adventure seekers. It’s all that and more: it also boasts of one of Asia’s longest cable cars at 4 km long, with chair lifts and ski lifts for skiers. Located around 250 km away from Rishikesh in Uttarakhand, Auli has a charm of its own, attracting skiers from all over the country.

An awesome skiing and sightseeing destination

We visited Auli in the first week of February. It is a small place near Joshimath and important skiing destination. It was definitely worth the trip. It has the longest cable car in Asia and it took around 25 min for us to ascend from Joshimath to Auli. Other ways are via road or chair lift or ski lift. But road may be blocked due to fresh snowfall during that time.Activities on site: Skiing-Fresh snowfall and sloped hills make it favourable place for skiing and you will love the experience.Sightseeing- You get beautiful panoramic views of the Himalayas from the top.Trekking- There is a separate route for trekking so you will enjoy trekking if you are upto it :)Advice to travellers: Temperature may dip as low as -1deg to 0 deg, so go prepared with your winter gear. Those who like visiting hills, trekking, adventure sports will like this place. This place is not crowded as Shimla or Manali but you will definitely like it here.Things you must carry: Winter gear, boots, gloves, sunglasses. Avoid carrying heavy bags as you will have to go up the hill from Joshimath, so just carry a light bag with essentials like water bottle, eateries.Overall it was a nice place to visit and moreover the roadtrip experience was rejuvenating.

Amazing place to ski

It is no wonder that Auli hosted the SAF Winter Games in the year. This place is just wonderful. You will get to choose from a wide range of skis from the ski shop. The slopes are also really good. You can learn on slopes that are not too steep and then there are slopes which make you feel alive again. Certainly, one the of the best places to ski in India.
