Useful Tips for Your China Ski Tour

Snow usually begins to fall from November in northern China and December in southwestern China. And there are usually 3-4 months’ snow covered period for almost ski resorts around China. Travelers usually enjoy their skiing vacation between December to the next February.

Wear professional and standard ski equipment including skis, poles, helmet, ski boots, knee pads, elbow pads, etc. To keep your personal safety. For clothing, it is highly recommended to wear in layers so that you can put them on when feeling cold or take them off when feeling hot. Usually, base layers made of cotton, ski jacket, goggles, ski gloves, wool ski socks, thick fleece, fleece headband, ear muffs, snow pants, waterproof coats, face masks, etc. are most suggested. If you are going to join a party after skiing, take your nicer outfits.

The above listed clothing need to be packed. Besides, sunblock, lipstick, moisture cream and make-up, camera and chargers, travel plug adapter, high energy snacks (chocolates, energetic bars, nuts, etc.), medication including painkillers, etc. are better to be packed.

You can take your own ski gears and equipment including skis, snowboarding, ski clothing, etc. To save money renting on site at the ski resort, however, you need to pay some fee if you are flying to the resort destination.

In fact, ski resorts at Yabuli, Beidahu, Changbaishan, Xiling Snow Mountain, etc. all have ski equipment renting service for you to find your ones with suitable sizes, helping you reduce your packing weight. However, you need a little higher budget.

If you never experienced skiing or ski at a very basic level, choose a ski resort where you can find professional ski trainers to teach you how to ski at the beginner’s level, so that you can reduce the chance getting injuries.

Do not have too much food for the dinner and try to go to sleep early for enough rest the night before your first skiing day. And enjoy a nutritious and energetic breakfast for your sport on your skiing day.
