Ski Resort

Thought it might be interesting to let you see a picture of what is left of the new and only snow skiing resort in Mongolia. This is just outside the capital city of Ulaanbaarar, to the east.

We thought about posting a picture when there was lots of snow, but you couldn't really tell it was there from this distance. Now, all that is left is the compacted ski runs and it stands out really well.

They even have the runs very well lit at night, during the winter months.

We hear it is pretty pricey to ski there! They also have a restaurant at the base of the runs -- or so we are told.

Looks like the ski resorts they have back East. After living in Utah though... ;D

That looks so weird seeing just the runs with snow on them, they really do stick out like that. You should go skiing and tried it out. There is not going to really be another chance for you to say that you went skiing in Mongolia, right?

So how did you get the picture of you didn't go to the ski resort? What I'd like to see is Melba on the ski run.
