Work is continuing apace this summer on venues for the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games in China.

The Beijing 2022 competitions will be co-hosted by Beijing, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou in Hebei Province making up three ‘competition zones’.

The Zhangjiakou Zone, with a total of eight competition and non-competition venues, will be the host of five FIS disciplines and Biathlon staging a total of 50 events (Snowboard, Freestyle Skiing, Cross Country, Ski Jumping, Nordic Combined and Biathlon).

It has been announced that the design of competition venues in Zhangjiakou is closely linked with Chinese elements. For example, the Ski Jumping course at the Nordic Centre is designed as Ruyi, an S-shaped Chinese traditional ornamental object and a symbol of good luck.

Currently 38 construction projects are underway at Zhangjiakou including the Nordic and Biathlon Centres, the Genting Snow Park, projects such as event roads and landscape engineering began again after being suspended due to weather.  28 of these projects are continuing after the winter break, while 10 projects are new this year.
