Sorry, there is no direct way to the ski resort. The taxi costs around CNY150. If you take public bus, you need to take shuttle bus line of Changping to Changping Central park station, then transfer to bus No.21 to Radiator Base station, and take taxi to ski resort.

I think visiting two places in a day may be very tight. You are advised to take a taxi or hire a car, which is more quicker and convenient.
