Skiing near Beijing?


So we're in Beijing from the 22nd to 27th, so technically 4 full days. Of those 4 full days, we are doing a 2 day tour to the Great Wall and other touristy things. That means we have 2 free days, and we were wondering whether if it's worth going Skiing for 1 day (day trip) if there's a place nearby?

2 people have never skiied in their lives, and I've done it a little over the last few years, so medium. My question is, is it worth going skiing for a day?

Or is there an alternative someone can suggest how to spend the two other days (cbf doing any museums or anything similar to Forbidden Palaces and such). ANy help would be great!

You can ski, I would suggest Nanshan. However, coming all the way from Australia to Beijing to ski??? Waste of time in my opinion, you can do this in Australia.

Hard to suggest what to do aswe have no idea what your tour is covering. You can easily keep busy for a week in Beijing.

Agree with Jean-Pierre

My question is, is it worth going skiing for a day?

---> NO.

2 people have never skiied in their lives

---> not good idea to try it first in China.

Easy to spend four days in Beijing. Many people rate it as too short.

22-27 Dec? Be prepared for cold dry weather. Most likely no snow.

Check out the Olympic Park and Sanlitun for a modern view of Beijing. Nanluoguxiang and nearby Houhai is also nice.
