Default Snowboarding China

Anyone ever been up here Snowboarding?

My mrs' is from over there and we are looking at going for a week or two boarding up north China. She reckons the sport is just starting up there.

Any recommendations on good resorts etc there?

From what I have seen the resorts are rudimentary and don't really seem to be in the "snow" zone. More man made than the natural stuff. I believe they are planning in building a mega resort, Whistler style in a more precipitous range. The problem being is that it's also remote. The scene is just getting going there, but I wouldn't expect much. Even the backcountry stuff is little known in China.

Obviously, they are the Chinese after all. I fully expect the tram (And it will be a tram, I'm sure) to launch fireworks every time it goes up.

Default research

tried to do some research online but not many sites(or at least english sites) have much detail.

Seems like the biggest resort has a couple of chairs and thats about it. Cant find pics as yet, but ill keep looking.

If anyone has been boarding up there feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Looked into china last year, not very appealing at the moment. Best bet is to cross the himilayas to Gulmarg, Kashmir and crank the Gondala
