Another major snowfall for gulmarg from 16.12.2008 evening

The current round of snowfall from 7th Dec. ’08 has resulted in snow accumulation to about 2.5 ft to 3 ft. at gulmarg lower gondola station . Another major round of snow storm is likely from 16th/ 17th Dec. for about 3-5 days. It is likely that further approx 3 ft of dry powder snow is going to accumulate over and above the current level of snow at  Gulmarg. The level of accumulation on the upper slopes is likely to be increased by more than 5 ft. The snow condition would be same as is generally available in mid January for skiing. Gulmarg would be the right place for doing skiing during the christmas vacations.
