Shimla Skiing

If you love speed and can balance yourself, then check out Skiing, the oldest adventurous sport of Shimla at Kufri,16 km away from Shimla. Skiing in Shimla started since 1930 by the Britishers. You can also do Skiing at Narkanda, a place 64 km away from Shimla.

Skiing has been cut off into two sections - Alpine and Nordic. The former includes racing down the steep prepared slopes while the latter comprises of cross country and ski-jumping from an elevated position. Another type of skiing which is in fame these days is Heli-Skiing.

Heli-Skiing is more interesting and adventurous, risky and dangerous then try the normal skiing because it starts off from the mountain peaks. In this game you are dropped at the peak of the mounatin from where you slope down at a very high speed. And as you move down, you can experience the blows of the cool chilly winds on your face. Here you need to have good balance of yourself or else you might land yourself in trouble.
