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...
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
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..
