Beijing 2022 “Cool China”: 3 spots for winter sports and folk customs



“Cool China,” a CGTN special series on the Beijing 2022 Winter Games, will feature snow and ice sports activities at three Chinese venues and explore unique folk customs. Short videos will be presented, highlighting people’s lives, embracing diversity and encouraging greater participation in winter sports.

CGTN reporters will visit the three places with their own winter characteristics: Changbai Mountain in northeast Jilin Province, Altay City in northwest Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, and sand lake in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, also in the northwest. Local winter activities such as snow swing, snow tug of war, and snow cave fondue in minus 20℃ snow castle will be introduced. The hosts will also talk to the heirs of traditional fur skiing in Altay, which claims to be the birthplace of skiing.

By tracing the background and history of Chinese winter activities and folk customs among the various ethnic minority groups in welcoming the Chinese New Year, the series is built around a consolidated theme that the atmosphere of the Games Beijing 2022 Winter Championship is not limited to host venues, but is over all Cool China.
