Skiing in Shenzhen, China

Postby jjensen » Mon Nov 22, 2010 11:44 pm

I recently posted from when I skied in Shanghai this summer and since not that many folks have skied indoors in China, I dug out my pix from when I skied in Shenzhen, China, which also has an indoor ski area.

I have to say I really had a bit of fun in Shenzhen. They had a Poma that pulled you up the "slope" - although, please note, Poma's are kinda chilly when your wearing shorts to ski in :)

The snow was firmer in Shenzhen, so it was actually skiing. They thought we were crazy Americans skiing, because we were all laughing so hard going down the run. I watched an adult ski class and found it interesting as they did Calisthenics before even starting to learn to ski. When I was there, snowboarding seemed to be more popular than skiing, as was the tubing hill.

All in all, it was a good bit of fun!
