Phase 1 is nothing when compared to phase 2, you can try skiing here can take some snaps and have snacks because you won't get anything on Phase 2.
I paid 800 for skiing for unlimited time, first they will teach you some basics and will be with you all the time so you do not fall. You have to negotiate for better prices if your group is big you can make a good deal.

We booked the ride till phase 2 of Gulmarg Gondola which is about 11 minutes from ground. Following are the highlights of the experience:
a) The ticket to Gondola Ride are to be bought at that moment and the queue at counter is fairy long. Keep room for that and best to reach there by 10/11 in the morning.
b) The queue to board the Gondola is equally long (in peak season at least). At worst, it will take you 2 to 2.5 hours to actually sit in the cable car.
c) Make sure to take Gum boots on rent (pay 50-100 per pair) from beneath before getting in the boarding queue.
d) Go to phase 2 first. You will instantly thank yourself for taking all the trouble for booking. I went in April 2013 and it was ice ice everywhere (Check the pic). No shops, nothing commercial and just ice and hills everywhere.
e) After phase-2, descend to phase-1 for a natural pool of water, restaurants selling decent but a tad costly food. We had coffee and Biryani and enjoyed it, probably due to the cold!
f) Touts will offer you pony rides. Not really an experience. Best to walk the half mile distance from parking to ticket counter and enjoy the views.
g) You can stay in one of the govt/private resorts in Gulmarg. But we stayed in Srinagar and came here for 1 day. It felt enough.

We did not have a good experience ,may be because the time of year we choose to go there was not good.We went there Sept end and it was cloudy and raining most of the time.We were not able to go to the 2nd stage because of the bad weather it was closed.

Book Gandola online and book early...
No need to take guides it's nature to be seen.
Book early and visit both stages to enjoy it to the full. 2nd stage is open for short duration, as diffuclt weather forces it to be closed early, so start early.:)
