Mongolia’s first ski resort opens today

Mongolia is reportedly opening it’s first proper ski resort today, located near the capitol Ulanbaatar. has learned that Mongolia’s new ‘Sky Resort’ has nine ski runs served by two chairlifts, one of which is just for beginners, and four surface lifts. The lifts and runs are located between 1379m (4523ft) and 1570m (5150ft), giving it a 191m (626ft) vertical.

The runs are completely covered by artificial snow, which is needed because the area is extremely dry and only receives an annual average of 20cm (7.8in) of snow between November and February. However, with an average winter temperature of -20ºC (-4ºF), it won’t be a problem creating the conditions needed to make and retain snow. The area will operate a golf course in the summer.

The nearest existing resort is believed to be Alsham in just across the boder in the Chinese province of Inner Mongolia - not to be confused with the actual country of Mongolia.
