A thrilling ride can give you the best feel.. I was first time in the snow and on ice roads too but I appreciate myself. :-D. Though I would strongly suggest not to plan by bike on snowy roads, it's damn risky. Your travel can turn into a problem. But have fun at your own risk.
On two wheels you can get thrilling experience at cost of risk and on four wheels you gonna enjoy without worry. These are the pics which will give you an insight that how would it feel to travel on this road when part of road is covered by slippery Ice.
I made a single day trip to this place with one of my best frnd...Ritesh. 200 Kms in a single day from Srinagar Garhwal to Chopta and back. Really the experience was awesome. Happy thrilling. :-)
