2022 Winter Olympic Games will help to boost the construction of Ski Resorts in many parts of the county.
Here is a New Ski Resort (opened late last year) from Ngawa Prefecture (Southwest China's Sichuan Province) at the East Edge of the Tibetan Plateau:




Mount Jiuding - Taiziling (4,969 M) Ski Resort - 九鼎山-太子岭 滑雪度假胜地
Mao County, Ngawa Prefecture, Sichuan Province, SW China


Most of China's famous ski resorts are found either in Northeastern or in Northern Part of the country because of the favorable freezing weather.
In contrast, due to the mild winter weather, there are only a handful of ski resorts can be named from South China. Like this one, they all position themselves at high altitude mountains.

Mount Jiuding-Taiziling Ski Resort with the current base elevation at 2,730 metres, and the summit elevation of 2,970 metres (trail 2.5km) will have both ends extended to 2,300M and 4,468M (trail 136km) by year 2020,
expecting it to be the World's First Ski Resort with Vertical Rise of over 2,000M

Bid win will boost regional links, create jobs
China Daily Excerpt
2015-08-01

Success fits with the national project to integrate development and control pollution, mayor says

Bid win will boost regional links, create jobs

Bid officials said winning the hosting rights for the 2022 Winter Olympics will fuel regional integration between Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province, especially on transportation, air pollution control and tourism.

Beijing hosting the Games with Zhangjiakou in Hebei fits nicely with the national project to pursue integrated development between the three areas, according to Wang Anshun, Beijing's mayor.

Wang said on Friday that a successful bid would greatly fuel the industrial structure of the combined region by offering improved infrastructure facilities.

The joint rights would also require closer cooperation between the two host cities, advance efforts to control air pollution and boost winter sports, related industries and tourism, which could create more jobs and improve residents' livelihoods, Wang said.

China has designated three venue clusters in downtown Beijing, Yanqing county and Zhangjiakou.

All the ice events, including speedskating, ice hockey and curling, will be held in downtown Beijing. A Nordic and Biathlon Center will be built in Zhangjiakou and an Alpine Ski Center in Yanqing county, northwest Beijing.

According to a report by the Hebei Academy of Social Sciences, a successful bid means that Zhangjiakou will prepare for the Games by creating more than 400,000 jobs for local residents before 2022.

"The per capita income of residents in Chongli county reached 6,840 yuan ($1,115) last year and that of those living near the ski resorts was higher - more than 40,000 yuan," He Jianghai, deputy Party chief of Zhangjiakou, told the media on July 8.

According to He, last year more than 20,000 local residents joined the booming tourism and related industries, accounting for one-sixth of the county's population.

The county has built a digital urban management center and will promote transportation, entertainment, healthcare facilities and other services for residents, He added.

Construction of a high-speed rail link between Beijing and Zhangjiakou has been speeded up and is scheduled for completion by 2019.

Within five years, 1,500 km of rail line will be operating in the region, placing it among the highest regional concentrations of rail lines globally, according to the national economic planner, which will help with exchanges between residents and businesses.

They say the stadium is only hosting the opening and closing ceremonies. No out door sports will be held in the stadium unlike the summer games where the main stadium hosts the track and field events. Rio will be the first host city where the track and field events will be held outside of the main stadium. Rio's main stadium will host soccer events tho. Is there any links of where we can read about the venues that will be used since they are reusing a lot of the venues from the 2008 Olympics and only doing a few construction projects.
