Surprisingly India has commercial Heliboarding operations running throughout the winter into early April. The best locations are in the Himalayan region of Hanuman Tibba, Deo Tibba, Rohtang Pass and Chandrakhani Pass, all close to the Manali valley which is a wild place where loads of marijuana is grown.

Yhe Gulmarg in the Kashkir regions also offer heliboarding, but only experienced travellers and boarders should try these places, as if you have an accident, it’s a long way for any help. www.himachal.com run heliboarding trips out of a small village north of Manali but expect to pay $6500 for a week trip. The main attraction of heliboarding in India is the guarantee of great light fluffy snow and the chance to take on some fantastic Oak tree runs.
