It will never be an international Ski Resort. The hotel Staff cannot speak any word English and don't care about international guests. The "Resorts" don't accept international credit cards like Visa or MasterCard. The hotels don't accept and care about booking.com confirmations. The Snow Spring...More

When we went it was full of domestic tourists who could not ski. The ski instructors were more concerned with taking photos of the learners than actually teaching them. We were probably better skiers than the instructors, one even went over the back of my...More

Hi all, can you let me know whether Yabuli is the closest resort to Harbin that hires snowmobiles? (Not counting Songhua river). Thanks!

It's the largest ski resort to Harbin that lets you hire snowmobiles.
Many thanks for your helpful review. I head to Yabuli from Harbin next week. Any other insights would be appreciated. How long was the train? Is food really expensive at Yabuli? I am staying there a few nights to ski/bringing my own equipment. I've prepared for extreme cold.
