You need to take a high speed train from Beijing Qinghe Railway Station to Zhangjiakou Station. It takes about 1 hour and costs around CNY 70-90 for a second class seat.

From the airport to Qinghe Station, take Capital Airport Line to Sanyuanqiao and transfer to Metro Line 10 to Zhichun Road. After that, transfer to Metro Line 13 to Qinghe Station. It takes about 70 minutes and costs CNY30.

After arriving in Zhangjiakou Station, take Bus Line 11 to Erwuyi Hospital and walk about 700m to the hotel.

Ski during Spring Festival of Zhangjiakou Ski Resorts?
Hello, can you tell me whether these resorts are expected to be crowded during the Spring Festival, particularly between the 4th - 11th February? Are there other resorts relatively near to Beijing which are less crowded? Thanks

Answered by Aba from USA | Oct. 11, 2018 01:00

Yes, it may be very crowded and expensive during the Spring Festival, including 4th - 11th February. You can have a try Lotus Mountain Ski Resort and Jundu Mountain Ski Resort.

I want to find out the best way to get to Chongli County of Zhangjiakou.
I have skis and no car, I'm not sure I can take skis in a taxi. Do any of the resorts run shuttle buses from Beijing? I haven't been able to find any information about this.

Answered by Robert from DENMARK | Nov. 14, 2017 21:10

Yes, there are buses from Lianhuachi Bus Station. The buses depart at 7:00, 7:30, 9:00, 13:00 and 14:40, costing CNY80.
Answered by Alex from ENGLAND | Nov. 15, 2017 01:22

Do these buses go directly to the resorts? If I want to go to Wanlong, for example, will I need to take a taxi? I plan to take my skis and I'm worried I won't be able to get them into a taxi.
Answered by Robert | Nov. 15, 2017 19:16

As I know, the bus doesn’t go straight to the resorts but the bus station, so you may take a local car to the resort.
By the way, I was told there is a shuttle bus from Gongzhufen station of metro line 1 and line 10 to Wanlong Ski Resort, which costs CNY120 for a single trip!
