The Ski Resort
Shijinglong ski resort was built in 1999, making it one of the oldest ones in China. It is located merely 80km/50mi from Bejing city centre, and is perfect for beginners. The area features eleven runs, three of which are marked as very easy, seven as easy, and one as difficult. The latter is one kilometre long, with a gradient of 30 degrees. Due to the low altitute, snow-making facilities are needed during the season from late November to February.
Snow sportsmen can ride two button lifts and two chair lifts at Shijinglong. Four magic carpets at the base area are perfect to practice. The teachers of Rossignol Ski School help novices on their first steps, and give helpful tips for the right technique. Besides an own Camp Learning Zone, there is also a training area for people with handicap. At the terrain park, young and old winter sports enthusiasts learn how to ride a monoski, or try a snow bike. Moreover, there is a kids' playground and a slope for tobogganing.
Right across the service building, where you can find ski and snowboard rentals and more, visitors can grab a bite to eat at Shijinglong Tourist Restaurant. From the second floor you get a great view over the slopes. After a day on the boards, guests can look forward to a special highlight: at the thermal pools next to the slope you can relax your muscles in the hot water, and enjoy the sun set! You can find accommodation at Shijinglong Hotel, featuring around 30 rooms.
