It is not true that winter is a totally bad time for a visit to Mongolia. Well, -40 °C is cold indeed, but the beauty of the surrounding untouched wilderness is still enjoyable, just a bit frozen and snowy. What could be more breathtaking than a free ride with views of this stunning scenery? Mongolia offers two main ski resorts. Gorkhi-Terelj National Park has the benefit of cross-country skiing. In Sky Resort, one may ski at night which is particularly beautiful as you can observe lights from the capital city while sliding down the slopes. The season runs from mid-November through March.
