Must be aware of Auli, Manali and Gulmarg as some of the most well known skiing destinations in India? How about exploring a lesser known destination this time?
An hour and half away from Shimla is Narkanda, the oldest ski destination in the country. Still untouched, still virgin, and devoid of the usual tourist clutter, Narkanda is enveloped in snow in January and February. A versatile terrain makes it a good bet for skiing enthusiasts; it has gentle slopes, as well as tougher curves and gradients for the more experienced skiers. This time of the year special skiing courses are organized by the Himachal tourism. Also known for apple, it’s a good idea to check into V Resorts Narkanda, cradled in a valley, and overlooking the Churdhar Himalayan range, sample the famed local apple wine, and relax in the wood and warm interiors. After a hard day at the slopes.

V RESORTS MASHOBRA GREENS
Located 15 km from Shimla, V Resorts Mashobra Greens is tucked deep inside the pine forest, and lined with apple orchards on one side and views of the snow-clad western Himalayan range on the other. The camp, comprising tents and cottages at an altitude of 7,100 ft, is a lovely paradox for the lovers of nature. Its scenic, placid setting brings peace to the mind and its expertise in adventure activities – all trainers are certified – gets the adrenaline going. It's quiet here (if you don't mind the chirping birds waking you up). There are accidental seasonal streams to surprise you, apple orchards to take a walk in, night treks, survival training modules if stuck in the woods, and rafting to test your stamina.
