Feather on Indian turban

The government of Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) is ready to purchase snow-creating machineries to fill the Gulmarg slopes with man-made snow in a tender to proceed the ski season in the renowned winter resort. Tourism Department wants to start this new plan initiated from mid-November itself but the Ski Tourism season in Gulmarg usually begins in the month of January.

Ishfaq-ul-Hassan reported in DNA that the snow apparatus will shower water vapours in the air through a snow gun, which would freeze in the circumambient temperature and collapse down as snowflakes on the required area, the snowflakes will make a snow layer of three to four inches, which will be just right for skiing.

Talat Parvez, Director Tourism, Kashmir, said that There is a definite skiing season in Europe. Our ski season is dependent on ecological circumstances. With the aid of these equipments we can ensure that our ski season will start on November 15 or December 1.

The administration is arranging to pay money for both permanent and mobile machines, which are possible to be made to order by next year. Parvez also added, “We are figuring out the technical requirements of the machines, once it is decided, we would invite tenders. We hope by next year we will be able to have the machines,” adding the government is yet to allocate a budget for the same.

Gulmarg, located at a height of 2,690 mts, was announced the seventh top ski resort of Asia in a survey in 2010. It is Popular for its lush green prairies and world-class Alps, the resort seems to be home to Nanga Parbat, the world’s ninth highest peak.

Parvez also said that they would have to do some civil work to level the slopes, so that the snow layer can conveniently be made. The snow machines will only try to appendage till there is a natural snowfall. They want to entice as many as tourists to Gulmarg in the lean months of November and December as possible. And they feel snow machines would go a long way in helping them in their endeavour. By Vikas Nehra
