Auli is a beautiful ski destination in the Himalayan mountains of Uttarakhand, India. Auli lies on the way to Badrinath. It is blessed with a breathtaking panoramic view of the lofty peaks of the greatest mountain range in the world, the Himalayas. It is 290 km from Dehradun and 252 km from Rishikesh. Strolling through the cloudy slope gives one with the imposing scenes of some of the lofty mountain ranges like Nanda Devi, Mana Paravat and Kamat Kamet. Besides these cloudy miracles, the boulevards through the slopes offer marvelous views of gorgeous apple orchards and fine deodar trees, which make one morning, stride a precious experience. Auli offers a credible past that goes back to the eight century. It is believed that this beautiful area is blessed with the sacred visit of Sankaracharya. As a toddler in the tourism arena, Auli offers an unspoiled ambiance. The harsh frosty storms, the sylvan peaks and the long stretch of snowy valleys would make idyllic surroundings for a skier. Aptly called as the haven for skiing activities, this hilly resort is turned to be the only tourist destination where skiing is the most sought after past time.

Another beautiful day in Himalaya but you will feel little more confidence for skiing. Today is same as the previous day, you’ll just fall less, we guess. After a round of instructions, you begin to balance on the skies. You will now be able to stand on the skis and learn to apply breaks on your own. The first few rounds will all be about crash landing at the end of the slope.
Another day to move ahead. You learn how to move forward on a gentle slope. You will perfect your parallel turns and snowplow turns. The snowplow turn is a braking and turning skiing technique, usually taught to beginners. The front tips of the skis are brought together and the tails pushed wide apart, with the knees rolled inwards slightly. By applying pressure against the snow with the edges of the skis, speed is reduced and the skier can stop completely.
Final day of skiing and your chance to show-off your mastery with the skis. Your instructor will take you to an advance slope. This slope is much longer than the beginner slope, and you will definitely gain a lot of speed while sliding on it. Your instructor will be with you for the entire duration to help you perfect your ski runs. at last you will be honored with a certificate of appreciation.
After an extensive learning tour, its time for our return journey. We’re sure your newly learned ski lesson will activate millions of new neuron in your brain cells.
