[From New York Times]: On a frigid night in Gulmarg, a Himalayan outpost deep in Kashmir, a friend and I sipped sweet tea and warmed ourselves next to a wood stove while a local ski guide named Javed stood in front of us, roaring like a bear. “Baah! Baah!” he shouted, his hands outstretched like claws. “I thought it was going to kill us,” Javed said of the Asiatic black bear he had encountered a few days before while skiing in the backcountry.

 

Which reminded him of the time he skied off a natural jump in the forest and nearly landed on a snow leopard. “Where did that happen?” I asked.

 

“Babareshi,” said Mushtaq, another guide. “The place we skied today.”

 

Jon and I had come to Gulmarg in the Jammu and Kashmir region of northern India for a reason that, given the area’s militant history and lack of reliable infrastructure, might sound a bit absurd: to go skiing. We came for perfect powder, an absence of crowds and serene, stunning Himalayan beauty — as seen from the world’s highest-altitude gondola-serviced ski runs. Those runs top out, dizzyingly, at more than 13,000 feet.
