Shimla: The national sub-junior skiing tournament to be held near Narkanda has been cancelled due to lack of sufficient snow. The tournament was earlier scheduled to be held from February 11 and then rescheduled for March 1. The event was being organised by the state Winter Games Association, and was the first such tournament for Himachal. Due to late of early powder snow, heli-skiing could not be held in the state for the first time. The sport is generally held from January till April beginning in the Manali area.
This has really been great disappointment. First, late snowfall and secondly March being exam time, particiapants could not come.
There is over 3 ft of snow at the slopes and its a carnival like atmosphere here. Everyone is welcome!
