On the morning of December 28, the 24th China • Jilin International Rime Ice and Snow Festival, themed with “capital of rime and paradise of skiing – riverside city in north China • Jilin City”, opened in Beidahu Ski Resort.

At the opening ceremony, various forms of cultural performances, such as snow aerobics, imposing gong and drum performance, and snow football, were successively carried out. Along with passionate music, hundreds of skiers sneaked down from the distant mountain trail and the soaring fog set off the snow-capped land. A picture of great rejoicing in ice and snow leapt into eyes.

At the opening ceremony, the project of popularizing snow and ice sports for primary and middle school students in Jilin City, themed with “building ice and snow dreams to meet in Winter Olympics”, was started simultaneously. Relevant provincial and municipal leaders awarded the plaque of “skiing training base for primary and secondary schools in Jilin City” to nine snow resorts such as Beidahu Ski Resort and Vanke Songhua Lake Resort. In the form of paying bills by the government, Jilin City moved the physical education classes of 147 primary and secondary schools in the city to ski resorts to achieve the goal of pushing 200,000 primary and secondary school students in the city to go skiing.

Today, the beating of gongs and drums resounded to the skies on the bank of the Songhua River as the "2018 China • Jilin International Rime Ice and Snow Festival International Winter Dragon Boat Invitational Tournament" opened. More than 400 athletes from 16 teams from Russia, Beijing, Macau, Zhejiang, Jilin and other places competed in the 200-meter straight race and the 500-meter straight race.

In recent years, Jilin City has focused on cultivating the market brand of capital of rime and famous city for ice and snow and sincerely invited guests and friends from home and abroad to come to Jilin City to experience world-class snow facilities, fine snow and ice activities and unique folk culture of the Northeast.
