Beijing at the height of summer is not where you would expect to find a bustling ski resort-until now.

A complex of high, dry ski slopes at the south end of Olympic Forest Park was officially unveiled on Tuesday as part of efforts by the city government to promote the winter sport as a year-round activity.

The resort, built by the park's management company and Beijing Sinolym Co, opened four courses for entry-to medium-level skiers as a trial on Saturday to a select group of enthusiasts. They were given the chance to experience the fun of skiing in light clothing under Beijing's summer sun.
