Our team recently visited Ski India, Asia’s largest indoor Sci-Fi based Snow Park which is situated in DLF Place Mall, Noida. We were here to experience some kool times during the scorching summers of the capital city of India. Till Ski India was launched the only escapades that we Delhites had was the nearby hill stations – but no loner – SKI INDIA is here now.
As we entered, we were asked to wear snow jackets but the very sight of the jackets made us sweat more. We were already wet in the sweat and did not want to further the agony of the heat. But we were told that we will need these jackets once inside as the temp inside would be in negative degrees.
So we took our jackets and entered the arena- it was like Alice entering the wonderland. It felt so good in the beginning, a cool breeze and chilly atmosphere felt so great. We were greeted by a blast of icy cold air and we were awe struck, thinking “Are we still in the heated city of ours, Delhi”. The entire arena was like a dreamland, where Ski India was offering a never-seen-before skiing experience and an array of intergalactic games. The 100-feet ski slope offered just the right amount of fun for beginners, although it did little to me, who had real ski experience earlier. The temperatures inside though made me feel as if I was in a hill station.
This most advanced Snow Park is a detailed replica of a snowy ski resort which houses out-of-the-world snow sports and adventures with varied activities, namely adventure ski ride, tubing, toboggan, bob sledge, penguin shows, monorail ride, ice lounge, ski and sliding slopes with various gradients, rope lift and flat snow play area. This unique concept has been planned to be user friendly by maintaining the internal space dome temperature at -10°C to -15°C for the freezing snow-fall experience.
Ski India is a one lakh sq ft property comprising 2 floors. It is an attempt to replicate the environs of a skiing resort within the NCR. There’s also a skating ring in the arena, where we kept on falling, until we got a hang of ice skating. They even had a special area where we enjoyed snowfall just like we did in Gulmarg last December.
From a kid to an old age, everyone can come and enjoy at this place with their near and dear ones. Dubbed as the snow-themed ski park in the country, Ski India is a good place for a family trip or for some solo ski adventure. Time management is key here, so one has to make the most of the 1.5 hours that he gets to spend, as there are long queues at every attraction.
One can visit and enjoy the snowfall at Ski India from Monday to Sunday, from 11 am to 10 pm, with each session of 1 hour 45 minutes, priced at Rs 1000. There are six sessions on offer and entry in the middle of an ongoing session is prohibited. So, it’s best to plan accordingly. One can even pre-book his tickets by visiting the website, three hours prior to a session.
