My mantra from the last 10 years is the same. Some day China will have great skiing.
But it won't be the resorts around Beijing or in Har bin. They are too flat and too dry. And crap. Himalaya's however...
and we have had a few China threads
"Some day" seems like now, or 2022 at worst.
Stumbled across this last night, not a bad watch. Bit of background fluff at the end though, shame there's not more skiiing shown from around Altay.
The skiing in Aletai is ok.... got to visit a new cat/heli op this spring (late March).......
A little bit of ski footage.......
Skiing down Muztagh Ata ( 7000 M + ASL) in Far Western Chinese controlled Turkistan.
The Central Asian giant peaks of The Pamirs have their dangers. The peaks look less technical to climb but severe AMS, crevasses, extreme cold and bad weather can and do kill people.
One would have to be a gun at Alpine Touring technique to try to ski down a mountain such as this.
Some good friends of mine leave next month for Club Med Yabuli, in the North East of China above North Korea. Apparently conditions are pretty brutal there in the winter, really cold but not much naturual snow fall.
They were saying the ski industry in China is about to boom with the winter Olympics in Seoul next year and then the following games for 2022 in Beijing
Didnt realise it was 1955 here still.
What is not funny is the way the Haan Chinese Govt. treat the Uighurs , Tajiks and Kazakhs who live in Chinese Controlled Turkistan.The same can be said about the way the Tibetans are treated by the Haan Chinese Govt..
Not China but it’s client state DPRK - view from @ 10 minutes in...
Well I’m in Beijing right now and can officially report that downtown the skiing is shit.
Thank you and goodnight.
At least you exposed yourself, not a good idea in harsh environments though
