DETAILED DECRIPTION

The cultural brilliance of China is in a league of its own. Booming Beijing boasts a variety of beautiful, historic and traditional opportunities for adventure. Alongside this amazing metropolis lie awe-inspiring mountains and tranquil resorts, all of which offer Olympic-quality skiing to visitors from near and far. Starting in effervescent Beijing, explore the majestic architecture and ancient cultural influences that have long made this one of the greatest cities in the world. After, travel to Zhangjiakou and immerse yourself in the winter wonderland of China’s most magnificent mountains.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Beijing

Arrive in the glorious, cultural metropolis of Beijing and take in the bustling city sights as your driver transports you to your hotel. We recommend you enjoy your stay at either the newly renovated Peninsula Beijing, or the excitingly chic Opposite House.

DAY 2: Beijing

Journey through the intriguing and historical landmark of Tiananmen Square, learning about the revolutionary ideas that were born in this very area. After, explore the Forbidden City, formerly home to Chinese dynasties, and adventure through the local culture and charm of “Hutongs” (lanes and small streets). End your day with a visit to the beautiful Taoist Temple of Heaven.

DAY 3: Beijing

Rise early and drive to Mutianyu to visit China’s Great Wall, making sure to bring your camera for all the breathtaking photo opps. After, drive 20 miles to the Huaibei Ski Resort: spend three thrilling hours on the otherworldly peaks, all of which provide stunning views of ancient watchtowers across the Great Wall.

DAY 4: Zhangjiakou

After an early breakfast, pay a visit to the ancient Lama Temple, the oldest and best-preserved lamasery in Beijing, for a rare view into China’s alluring past. Enjoy a delicious lunch of local cuisine, then drive to the peaks of the lovely Secret Garden Ski Resort, slated to be the 2022 Olympic Games host for freestyle skiing competitions.

DAY 5: Zhangjiakou

Spend the daylight hours on the slopes, perfecting your technique and enjoying the perks of heated chairlifts and cable cars to transport you to the peaks. After, relax with a cocktail in the resort’s elegant Genting Lounge, which offers a luxurious Cigar Humidor room and a VIP wine cellar.

DAY 6: Zhangjiakou

After breakfast, enjoy a change of scenery by heading to the adjacent Wanlong Ski Resort: this north-facing resort offers a series of peaks steeper than those of the Secret Garden for more challenging runs. Later, return to the Secret Garden Ski Resort and sample the perfectly-prepared Hot Pot delicacies served at the traditional Old Beijing restaurant.

DAY 7: Beijing

Spend the morning and early afternoon taking your final rides down your favorite slopes. After a warm lunch, return to Beijing and enjoy an evening taking in the unique cultural excitement of the city.

DAY 8: Departure

After a light breakfast, it is time to bid Beijing farewell as you head to the airport for your departure flight home or onto your next exciting destination.
