Hello,

Thanks for your query in Kiomoi,

February second week can be a good time to see snow, if not in Shimla then at least in Kufri. You will get discount in hotels and for transport as well. Shimla has already seen two heavy snow showers and it is likely to be more in the coming time. So do come and also keep checking at www.Yahooweather.com about the weather condition in Shimla. They make very precise predictions.

Have A Nice Day !!!!
