Never heard of Wanlong Paradise Resort? It is one of China’s most popular ski resorts, located in Chongli district and within striking range of Beijing. It will host several alpine events when the Winter Olympics roll around in 2022.

And the skiing? Not bad, but we’ll let the resort’s newly-released promo video do the talking, which features some very dramatic music and has pushed our excitement levels up a notch ahead of the 2018/19 season. The resort has already received substantial snowfall in the last month, and will likely open in November – as many ski resorts in China do.
