Support sustainable “curry powder”

website Himalayanruntrek

Gulmarg, a hidden freeride paradise in situated in Kashmir the Himalayas. This is where you can find the famous “curry powder” and where locals will guide up you to 4.000m to shred this place. In winter 2011 – 2012 Gear4guides has managed to support ski teachers and guides in cooperation with Martijn Schell Ski & Mountain. Buying new gear is for Indians way over their budget (annual average income $ 500,-). By donating decent gear we can directly help locals in getting a job as ski teacher or guide. And these guys will be able to make more money an feed their families more properly.
