Gulmarg Winter Youth Festival We just walked around in Gulmarg for next 4 hours. We went all the way till Strawberry valley and then returned to the Golf Course; which now was actually the Ski ground. It was a sunny day and the entire town was filled with people enjoying Skiing and other winter activities. We found out that there was in fact a Winter Youth Festival going on that day. It was a mix of sports and cultural programs by both the local Kashmiri people and Indian Army. A Zorbing Ball. I was so eager to try this one out; but then decided not to when they told me that it was going to cost me Rs. 3000 for rolling down the hill for 5 mins. We both went for a snow scooter ride instead; and then half an hour of skiing which cost us Rs. 700 per person for half an hour each. We then paid a visit at the Saint Mary's Church.
