Snowprogres - snowboard freeride, splitboard - tranings and camps




Freeride trips in this panel are dedicated to people who want to add another element to their experience. This time India, Kashmir and areas of the highest lift on the planet. Although the upper lift station in Gulmarg, located at almost 4000m above sea level, makes an impression in itself – the goal is a line in the snow that cannot be compared to any other. The area is very diverse. Beautiful from open slopes, through falling sounds. It also has rare forests with a really good angle, designed for days with poor visibility.

The specificity of “Exotic” segment travel is search. Guides, training, freeriding in beautiful mountains. Indian Himalayas, which guarantee 1500 meters of elevation between the beginning and the end of the downhill. Deep down, tall trees, wide gullies, Kashmiri culture, good food and much more. You can experience all this in Kashmir, India. Gulmarg has become a Mecca for freeriders from around the world. Regardless of the weather, you can always find a place to ride in powder.

If the weather is favorable, we use the upper part of the gondola, which is located near the top of Mt Apharwat (4300m asl). When the weather is bad, the top station of the queue is closed. We then use the options in the woods, between widely spaced trees or use the area of ​​the middle station, which is almost always open. Driving down the Drang Valley (10-15 km) we will reach Tangmarg, from where we will return to Gulmarg by taxi. When the weather breaks badly, it will snow heavily, we have the opportunity to go downhill near Monkey Hill or Babarshi Trees, where we arrive by car. In the evening we discuss the plan for the next Freeride days.
