It’s an hour-long bus ride from the city out to Huai Bei when suddenly, hidden in the otherwise brown hillside, appears the Haui Bei International Ski Resort. Complete with three chair lifts and a custom Oakley Snow Park, the resort is one of the oldest ski resorts in Beijing and host of the 2012 Oakley Rookie Challenge.
