Shanghai's ski enthusiasts now have one more option for a weekend getaway – the Taicang Alps Resort, which opened on Wednesday.

The resort, in Taicang of neighboring Jiangsu Province, is located only an hour's drive from Shanghai's urban area and includes six major themed experience areas. In collaboration with the world-leading ski resort operator, Compagnie des Alpes, the resort offers a wide range of activities for guests.

The Alps Snow Live Ski Resort, equipped with five slopes of varying gradients, is capable of accommodating the needs of skiers of different skills and ages. Guests can take pleasure in seven magic carpets operating simultaneously and receive professional skiing instructions onsite. For those who do not ski, the Alps Snow Live Ice and Snow Park offers more than 10 immersive snow entertainment activities, such as mountain crossing, ice palace adventures, and penguin interactions, which fully exhibit the charm of ice and snow.
