From a developed, connected part of SEA - oh, let's say, Thailand - where is the nearest skiing? Mostly thinking of shortest travel time (eg, to go for a long weekend), but would also be interested in physically closest.
Japan jumped to mind, as I know there is skiing in Hokkaido.
I heard a rumor about a ski place in Burma, which would be interesting; when I tried to find information about it online, though, I only come up with references to plans/ideas to develop a fairly remote mountain (Hkakabo Razi) that don't seem near fruition.
Ideally, information about the development-level, difficulty, and approximate costs of the place(s) would be great.
(I imagine that anywhere in Japan is going to be developed to a typical US/EU standard, maybe on the easy side (groomers), and fairly pricey. Once upon a time, I read about skiing in Kashmir with pack-mules for 'chairlifts' - which would be interesting, although maybe too remote for a short trip.)
