Sorry I didn't respond before the weekend. Anyways, here's the info for anyone else interested...
I'm not sure of the name of the slope. You can see all the ski slopes from the ski center (where you rent skis). There are not many.
Ski pass (incl skis and boots) was 120/2 hours, 150/3h, 240 above 3 hours.
Ski clothes rental was 50/day
Not sure about all of the lodging. We stayed at the Scandina Resort Hotel, which I think was the newest and most expensive place there. It was pretty nice, but we had a problem with the room (heating) and after arguing with the manager for over an hour we got a new room that we wanted.
I hope you had a great time, K!
We just went to XiLing Mountain the week before last. Here is some info...
There is one nice slope for experienced skiers/snowboarders, and a couple of bunny slopes.
There are not many hotels, less restaurants, and no bars (that we could find) up on the mountain.
There are lots and lots of beginner skiers/snowboarders.
There are two buses that go from Chengdu to XiLing Mountain every day.
Here are some tips...
Bring snacks and drinks.
The bus tickets to the mountain sell out quickly, so you have to go get them very early in the morning. Otherwise get a bus to Dayi and find a ride there.
Prices... I think lodging varies a lot depending on quality of the hotel; you can rent snowboards, boots, clothes at the ski center there, food and drink prices can be high since it is a tourist place.
Quality... Almost everyone working there (ski people, hotel clerks, waitresses, etc...) are students and just started working so the service in most places is not very good. Best to hope for the best and expect the worst... then you won't be too disappointed. ;)
