Where in Xinjiang? On the NE face of K2?
I came from China, my first experience on skis was in China, but that's not on a mountain. I was in a big refrigerator in Shanghai, an indoor "ski resort".
We hold the skis in hands and took a elevator up then slided down, no turn, just saw who falled less.
Skiing should have a long history in China. But mordern alpine skiing is less a popular recreational sports in most part of China, due to the nature conditions. There're some decent resorts in Heilongjiang and Xinjiang provinces with nice snow and slopes. but not convenient to tourists. Recent years, some new resorts were built up arround Beijing area to attract more skiers. I was never there, looked very small and almost all man-made snow.http://<a href="http://news3.xinhuan...561046.htm</a>
