BAIYIN, Jan 13 (Xinhua) --As the Beijing 2022 Olympic Games approaches, enthusiasm for winter sports has boomed in northwest China.
The Baiyin national snow event training base in northwest China's Gansu Province is frequently crowded with youngsters.
The base was built in late 2019, and contains a skier service center with over 100 rooms, a 75,000-square meter ski resort, an indoor training hall and a biathlon field.
The local government has incorporated the teaching of winter sports into physical education classes in primary and middle schools. So far, more than 2,000 local primary and middle school students have taken part in winter sports at the resort.
