I first visited the Indian Institute of Skiing and Mountaineering building at night and I could not make out its features at all. Also the concentration was on not falling down while walking on snow. Then I caught a glimpse of the Indian Institute of Skiing and Mountaineering at Gulmarg from a moving vehicle during the next day. I knew I had to ask the driver to stop so that we could click pictures!

I met the principle of the institute and you could see how much he enjoyed his work. He said I could actually do a course with my daughter if I can manage two weeks of leave! Now that is a very tempting proposition for me but not sure how my 5 year old will react to it! When I told her she shouted, “I will make a lot of snowmen!” I think I will just take her to a place where she make snowmen and leave skiing and all to when she grows up more or when I can easily manage two weeks of leave!

And the skies tell you a story too, it snowed at night at Gulmarg on the day I took this picture.

This post is part of Sky Watch Friday. It is great fun, do check it out.
