Video – Alpine Skiing in Spiti

When the winter is about to end in the month of February and the temperature starts rising in the remote valley of Spiti, some locals take out their old ski equipment and climb various snow covered slopes around Kaza to practise their ski skills.

When I was there for my project, Life in Spiti in the year 2015, I learn’t some basics and  each morning we would pack our breakfast and coffee and start our two hour long climb up on the slopes around Kaza till the altimeter showed 4000m. After a nice breakfast on a nice spot we would enjoy the sunrise and then slowly descend down those slopes.

Here is a video I made from a ski camp organised by Spiti Snowboard Association.
