Hello, fellow forum members. I have joined this forum to find out about Auli, which is a destination I have only recently heard about a lot. I am curious to know more about Auli and know whether it worth is visiting. I have very briefly read a description of Auli and so far all I know it is a ski destination with less crowd than places like Shimla or Manali. Here a few simple questions which I would like answered to find out more about Auli. 1. Is Auli only a ski destination? 2. Are there more activities other than skiing? 3. Between which months should we visit Auli during the summer season? 4. Will we still get to see snow in the summer months? 5. Are there any short duration treks for beginners in Auli? 6. Are there any lakes in Auli, something suitable for a picnic? 7. If we do decide to have a try at skiing, is skiing equipment easily available on rent there?
