The ski resort at Lake Songhua in the Jilin Province of northeast China attracts skiers and winter sports enthusiasts. Its slopes are open from the end of November until early March. The resort was renovated in 2014, and is now an important destination for winter tourism, with 31 km of slopes and seven ski lifts. The surrounding region is classified as snow safe, thus the resort benefits from perfect natural conditions. Its investors hope to develop a profitable new business that attracts the urban middle class, who already travels to European skiing resorts.
