“affordable ski & boarding experience”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Nanshan Ski is small mountain an hour away from Beijing. transportation to and fro Beijing is fairly easy with 2 pick up locations and costing RMB40 for a 2 way ride. A telephone reservation for a seat on the coach is definitely a must and it will also also provide discounted rates for both the entrance fee and rentals of equipment. As being a no fuss ski arena, you can head up there with no preparation and have all your gear rented there (skis, boards, parka, pants helmets) One of the highlights of this place is the competency of the ski/board instructors. A private ski/board lesson for 4 hours will set you back RMB 500+ not inclusive of tipping yet. It is definitely a good place to hone your skills and get the most mileage one on one. However, Mandarin is the language use here. Slope conditions is average, with man made snow, Mostly green runs with one black slope, fair amount of jumps and moguls. Dedicated ski and board learning area and lots of other activities for the kids. Food wise is pretty decent with chinese and western dishes available. For such a small ski area, there are 5 pro shops with all kinds of gears available. If you are bored with Beijing, take a day trip here and try out some thing different. But do avoid the weekends.

“Good, clean ski resort with friendly staff & ski instructors”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

We have been to ski resorts in USA & Australia and this is a pretty decent resort. The ski attire & equipment for rent are very well maintained & clean. We spent 2 days on the slopes in mid Dec when it was just before the peak season (from Christmas). Not all of the slopes were open, but the machines that made the artificial snow was powerful enough to cover 3 major sections. Well suited for beginners, and especially children as the ski instructors are friendly, good with children, and effective. My boys aged 8 & 12 had never tried skiing before, mastered it in the 2 hours lesson. Good enough for them to go on their own up the ski lifts. My older one took on another lesson, snowboarding & was apt in it by the end of the 2 hour lesson. Ski pass, attire & equipment rental was 135yuen, very value for money. There were group ski lessons, but we took the private option at 250yuen. There are a handful of shops with well established brands such as North Face, as well as F&B outlets. The Mongolian lamb skewers at 3yuen was absolutely yummy as they are grilled upon purchase. A bowl of hot noodles with soup is at 25yuen. We stayed overnight in the resort, which was clean, comfortable, and new. Heating was good. Hot bath water is limited to a 40L tank (possibly sufficient for 2 persons), but it was not a problem as the tank heated the water up again to 40L in about 15 mins. Accommodation is about 500yuen. Getting from Beijing to the resort is easy; choose either the resort's private car at 400yuen or take a 1hr bus ride from Beijing at 14yuen per pax.

“Fun Day Out Of Beijing!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Yesterday the 6 of us (in our 20's and early 30's) took the shuttle bus from BJ to Nanshan Ski Resort. The bus left 8:30 as they said it would [so don't be late]. It is only 1 hour away. Not knowing what to expect, we were all so pleasantly surprised! The place is beautiful and clean. For less than 350 yuan p/p we got: entrance fee, suit rental, gloves, goggles, skies + ski boots and a locker to store our things. The price also covered the return journey from BJ in their organized shuttle bus. The resort has about 20 different slopes for the different levels. It was my first time skiing and I loved it. They have friendly first aid staff watching the beginners slope at all times. This is not a tourist trap as 95% of the people there were Chinese. Highly recommended if you have a free extra day in BJ while travelling, or if you live in BJ and want to enjoy a fun day out of the big city (like us)!

“Our experience”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We booked the shuttle bus to the ski park which was pretty straight forward and an inexpensive option at only 40 rmb return, you can search for their english website to find the details.

However once we arrived their was no one who spoke english and paying for the ski and equipment hire was confusing. The only person we found that spoke english was trying to scam us which became pretty evident when he started asking for credit card details and our passports. Watch out for this man because if you ask one of the staff to direct you to someone who speaks english they may direct you to him, but he is not staff.

We were able to find a pamphlet which had all the details in both english and chinese and point to what we wanted and although it took a while we got everything we needed. The deposit is quite large we paid 1500 rmb for two people but at the end of the day we were refunded 1000 rmb.

We went on a weekday in February and it was not overly busy with little to no waiting time to get to the slopes. There is a great range from beginner to advanced. We started on the beginner slopes having never skied before and worked our way up to the intermediate slope which was intimidating but we survived. There is a play area where we made a snowman and you could slide down a mini slope on your butt and there are many kid friendly activities. There is a massive scary looking toboggan ride which looks quite the experience but we ran out of time to have a go ourselves.

They had mostly chinese food but there was a cafe near the equipment area that sold western food. I would avoid drinking very much because the toilets are not western and they were putrid. To get to the beginners slope you need to walk past it which can sometimes bring on dry wretching.

The place is not very Western friendly but you can get by with a pamphlet and some pointing. We had a great cheap day.
