Given our climate and lack of snow-capped mountains, it may come as a surprise that you can snowboard and ski in Hong Kong. The conditions are not exactly the powder runs of Whistler or terrain parks of New Zealand, but diehards can get their fix when business or finances keep them in the city. Slope Infinity is located on Electric Road, between Tin Hau and Fortress Hill MTR stations. Here, you can join the millions around the world who take pleasure in careering down all manner of slopes on a snowboard or skis. The catch is it's indoors and there's no snow, which means if you fall, you'll be reminded of it every time you sit down for the next week. But the beauty of having this winter-inspired haven in the middle of sub-tropical Asia is in allowing people to exercise in a fun way. Seasoned snow bunnies can jog their 'muscle memory' through practice, while the revolving training decks have adjustable speeds that cater to the wary and the confident. There are dedicated instructors for both disciplines. A 30-minute session costs $420, but this includes all equipment, one-on-one advice and a unique Hong Kong experience.
