It’s not much fun being in Shenzhen if you love to ski or snowboard. After all, we are unlikely to ever get frost, let alone some snow. A new indoor venue that has opened in Nanshan, however, offers snow sports enthusiasts a much needed place to go.
Before getting carried away, we should clarify this is no Alps or Aspen, but there is a mid-sized indoor dry ski slope as well as 3D alpine ski simulators, with expert instructors available. There are only four 3D simulators of their kind in the whole of China and are used to train the national ski team. Meanwhile, the indoor ski slope is made of a high-tech composite that allows for the tilt angle and speed of the slope to be adjusted.
It’s a safe environment available all-year round for novices to learn the basics before they go out on the slopes or for seasoned skiers to get the rust off those skies before they hit the snow again.
Color Snow also has a small trampoline park too, with one-on-one teachers and group classes available, as well as rock-climbing walls for the young wannabe Alex Honnold out there.
This gem of an indoor sports complex is hidden away in an industrial park, located a little away from Daxin metro station. If you plan to check it out, it’s recommended to take a taxi or drive.
Opening Hours: Monday to Friday, 13:30 to 21:30; Saturday to Sunday, 09:30 to 21:30
