Raid The Ice

AFTER the thrills and spills of the Raid de Himalaya we were treated to Ice Kross, a three-day event in Narkanda. It had snowed for a whole week, the national highway was blocked, the arterial roads would stay closed for weeks. It was just the right time for the motor sport event Ice Kross. Vijay Parmar, president of Himalayan Motorsport, had managed to assemble a bunch of adventurers, hard-core 4×4 off-roaders for whom the mountains and snow were a magnet. Himalayan Motorsport is the only outfit that organises snow driving events in the country, actually in South-East Asia.
