Qiaobo Ice and Snow World
Built on the initiative of the world speed-skater champion, Ye Qiaobo, in 2002, Qiaobo Ice and Snow World is a comprehensive high-end sports center with an indoor ski dome, Holiday Inn and combined sports healing and health care center. It boasts the only indoor ski dome allowing skiing activity throughout the year in North China.
Covering an area of 40,000 square meters, Qiaobo Ice and Snow World employs the use of a complete set of Canadian snow-making equipment and international advanced refrigeration technology to ensure that skiers will enjoy their pleasure from skiing. A number of entertaining sports events are developed to meet the demands of skiers of various levels in Qiaobo Ice and Snow World, including veneer skiing, dual-snowboard skiing and sledding.

The intermediate piste of 300 meters long and 40 meters wide has an average gradient of 17%, allowing visitors to ascend to the highest point of the piste, and it's tailor-made for intermediate-level skiers or senior-level skiers.
