I was in Beijing last october and we went to the Badaling ski resort which is less than 1 hour north from the city, but there wasn't any snow yet. It's basically a massive sand dune with snow cannons on it so I don't think the skiing would be that rad.
There's supposed to be better resorts further up north in the country, but it won't be as good as Korea or Japan I think. China is pretty fucking poor.
There are some insane mountains in China and as soon as they hire dopplemaur to build some quads, get drinkable water, and breathable air it might actually be nice. Oh yeah and getting meningitis isnt too great either.

Skiing, the only sport where the more you spend, the less credible you are!
