Skiing is by far the the best and the most popular way to enjoy freezing winters and snow. Not as famous as Shimla, Gulmarg or Manali, Auli is gearing up to be one of the best ski resorts in the country. Situated amidst the mighty Himalayas, the slopes offer ski options for both the novice and the professional skier. Auli in fact has Asia’s longest cable car, the gondola. For the visitors, the best time to visit is last week of Jan to first week of March for skiing.
