The Winter Olympics must mark the rise of ice and snow sports in China
For a long time, snow and ice sports were largely the hallmark of other countries, although China did win a few gold MEDALS in figure skating and the like, which were largely the province of Heilongjiang.Anyway, as far as I am concerned, skating and skiing are to work in Beijing after the things, very early went to beihai Park ice skating, also went to badaling ski resort skiing.Later, I also went to Yabuli in Heilongjiang province, Aspen in the United States, and Vancouver in Canada.In fact, I am also a weak chicken level.But in today’s China, shopping centers around the popular construction of ice rinks, artificial snow rinks around the development is also very fast.It is becoming more and more routine for young people to go skiing and ice skating.New National Bureau of Statistics survey shows that China has 346 million people claiming to have experience of ice and snow sports, 75% of them like me, is the only junior ski skating experience, “the national snow and ice season starting in 2014, the turnout of ultra do to the nearly hundred million recently, including universal effect was most pronounced in adolescents.The popularity of ice and snow sports has greatly expanded the mass participation of ice and snow sports, and provided a very good social foundation for high-quality ice and snow competitions and the development of ice and snow industry. Southerners not only pay attention to local ice and snow museums, but also travel to the north to play ice and snow.During the Spring Festival, skiing and skating became a new option to celebrate the Lunar New Year. According to Dianping, online visits to snow and ice sports and entertainment venues nationwide increased nearly twice in the first ten days of January compared with the previous month.Since November 2021, ski-related online orders have grown nearly tenfold from a year earlier.© Photo network In 2003, There were only 21 indoor skating rinks in China. According to the census results of sports venues in China, by the end of 2019, there were 770 ski rinks in China (currently there are more than 800. In 2016, there were more than 6,000 ski rinks in the world, which was the largest in Japan at that time), including 31 indoor ski halls.The number of ski resorts in Heilongjiang, Shandong, Xinjiang, Hebei and Shanxi ranks first in China, but the high-grade ski resorts are mainly distributed in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.During the same period, there were 876 different kinds of skating venues (but Canada alone has more than 3,000 ice rink), and 505 indoor skating halls, mainly distributed in the three northeastern provinces and The Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.But at present, the phenomenon of “north ice moving south” is also increasingly obvious, Guangdong, Yunnan and other provinces have built indoor ski and ice skating halls.But at present, there are few high-quality construction projects in ice and snow sports stadiums, and they are concentrated in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.The single use of peak season in snow and ice venues is obvious, and the multi-purpose planning of multi-season, snow and ice, other sports, vacation and study has not been fully carried out.Besides hardware construction, place management ability and refrigeration technology research and development are not enough.The shortage of management and service personnel training for ice and snow venues has restricted the jump of ice and snow sports.Here comes the Winter Olympic Games, from the successful bid of the 2015 Winter Olympic Games, to now officially held.The popularity and popularity of ice and snow sports in China provide a strong impetus for ice and snow sports entertainment to enter the life of the Chinese people, especially the young generation.We also believe that with the participation of a large Chinese Winter Olympic team and more Chinese athletes winning MEDALS, it will greatly stimulate the enthusiasm of more Chinese people to participate in ice sports.As the number of snow and ice sports venues in China continues to increase, the construction quality and technical content continue to improve, the management level and service level are more in place, and the supply of service personnel is fully improved, more preliminary participants are transformed into high-frequency and in-depth active participants of snow and ice sports (including me, haha).China’s ice and snow sports will show a magnificent development prospect for the world’s ice and snow sports.
