Ski/Snowboard in Shanghai

Today was my first time snowboarding. It's amazing to think you can ski/snowboard in Shanghai! The place is called Yinqixing Indoor Site, 银七星内滑雪场, open everyday from 9 am to 10 pm. It was created in 2005, the track is 380 metres long and 40 metres large, with 50 cm powder snow, it's considered as one of the longest indoor skiing track in the world (FYI Dubai is 400 metres long, the longest is in Bottrop, Germany). There are actually 3 slopes.
