It finally snowed heavily in Delhi, the temperature dipped to an unprecedented minus 15 degrees. Instead of cowering for cover, I join in the fun and hit my friends with snow balls. It

is not an environment disaster nor an apocalypse situation, here is what it is :

When I was invited for a press meet on the launch of Ski India, the indoor Sci-Fi themed Snow Park, I could not say no. Not only am I a water baby but also a snow junkie. Ski India is Asia’a largest indoor snow park. With more than one lakh square feet on 2 floors to boast of, it offers space for soft adventure activities such as skiing, snow boarding, Bobsleigh (Icy Luge), I Slip, Multi – Coaster, Drift on Ice (Skate), Snow Carousel, Frozen Odyssey (Planet Walk Through), sledging, a flat snow play area and even a live snow fall.  Clearly, now Delhi folks don’t need to run to hills for a respite in the hot summer.

We were offered to experience some of the sports before the opening of the snow park in an exclusive preview. I was so engrossed in participating in the activities that for a moment I was transported back to my childhood. I ended up repeating the activities.

The interiors are great for photo ops. The many robots, aliens, devils, snowmen, reindeers kept us busy with our cameras.  As I was soaked in the atmosphere, I couldn’t help but imagine what great fun it would be for my nephew and niece to experience the park. I plan to bring them along when it is finally open.

I was impressed before I even entered the park.  The zone is designed to give you a feel that you are entering a different planet. An illuminating Wormhole Portal at the entry swallows the visitors as they make a beeline for the gaming zone. We were told that Orri & Orran (Ski India’s mascots) will pilot the earthlings while the Snow Men will guide them through all the intergalactic sports.

The desk for equipments, jackets, long boots etc is right opposite the main next. Next to eat is a counter for snacks. The location is 5th floor, just above the food court of Mall Of India, Sector 18, Noida.

The Jain family addressed the press with their vision of Ski India and how its idea germinated. On the launch, Mr. Prasuk R Jain, Co-Founder & Managing Director, Ski India said, “The idea of Ski India was actually of my son and daughters.We wanted to do something new and unprecedented in India. We wanted to provide a family friendly platform where people can enjoy snow fall all year round. ”

Ski India is promoted by Chiliad Procons who are India’s leading Hospitality and Entertainment Group. We were given a subtle hint that many more exciting projects are in pipeline, the announcement of which will be done when something concrete happens in the right direction.
