Beijing Yuyang Ski Resort

Though probably unlikely to satisfy the cravings of adrenaline junkies or speed demons, the gentle slopes of Yuyang Ski Resort offer a day of fun and sun in the snow in the back hills of Beijing.

Yuyang, which is situated just over 60 kilometres from Beijing was first opened in 2006 and claims to be the largest of its kind near Beijing. Whilst a glance at the piste map promises a choice of nine runs to suit a wide range of abilities, it is worth being aware that such variety may not always be available. At the time of our visit only 2 nursery slopes were snow-covered and running, with the promise of another more challenging slope (with chairlift) and board park opening in the coming days.

Having arrived knowing not quite what to expect, we were impressed by the efficiency of the operation. As the fairly recent opening date suggested, everything was very modern and in good condition. The resort offers facilities for independent visitors, as well as groups and even VIPs, who are catered for in a special lounge on the second floor of the reception building.

In less than 20 minutes, and with minimal queuing, we found ourselves kitted out with skis or snowboards, boots and warm, if somewhat inelegant outfits, to struggle down the slopes in. Ill-fitting boots were quickly swapped for a more comfortable size, and staff were on-hand to assist beginners in the fastening of any stray straps and buckles. Excess bags and clothing were stored in secure yet convenient lockers, leaving nothing for us to worry about other than making it down the hill in one piece!
