When we were thinking about going to Changchun we worried a little about the sport possibilities.
Especially for skiing, since I (Rawi) just learned skiing in 2011 and I did not want to loose my skills. My mood cheered up when Olaf (our Conti plant manager) organized an Expat Ski trip to Beidahu. This location appeared to be a pretty decent ski ressort and just 2h East of Changchun.Beidahu has 4 lifts and 800m height difference. The top is at 1400m.
..and usually good snow. Most of the winter it can be very cold here, though always blue sky and intense sun, in December to March about -10 .. -30 ºC. We were lucky this week-end, an unusual warm period in February for a couple of days around 0 .. -5 ºC.
Most of Chinese who can afford skiing do also have good cars.
