Nearby Attractions

Ski resorts close to Beijing include: Badaling, Wanlong, Yuyang, and Jundushan. Jundushan Ski Resort is about 30 kilometers away from the center of Beijing. If you are looking for advanced slopes and something a little more like Vail or Aspen, Wanlong Ski Resort is about 250 kilometers away from Beijing, and it offers skiing all season long, since it sits on a high elevation mountain. There are slopes for advanced skiers such as a Nastar-like course and a mogul field.


The peak crowds on the slopes come during the two week Spring Festival national holidays that start on the lunar new year; that is, during the two weeks after February 13, 2010. The area will be unusually busy on these days.

The varied weather around Beijing may not allow skiing all season long.
