Mongolia’s first ski area opens

We’re talking Mongolia.  Not the Mongolie Grill at Whistler.  Mongolia is a land-locked country with Russia to the north and China to the south.

Mongolia has opened its first ski area.  The Sky Resort has nine ski runs and two chairlifts.  Most of the runs are for beginners.  Smart move there as improvement of Mongolians on two planks will be a gradual process.   That is, until next year, when the Mongolian groms will be ready to start boostin’ airs.

Mongolia is definitely cold, but snow is rare, so man made snow is what you’ll be skiing down if you pluck down the 24 bucks to get up on Sky Resort.  Congrats to Mongolians and welcome to the Tribe!  News report video can be viewed here.
