The word out of Beijing is that sales in ski and snowboard shops are at levels not usually seen until the peak of winter. Outdoor snow parks are set to open early to meet the demands of the people, and the good people of beijing demand to ski and board. Beijing is becoming the capitol of winter sports in China, and the numbers are growing. 700,000 Chinese currently ski or snowboard, and that number is expected to hit 10 million in five years. More than 30,000 Beijingers go skiing or snowboarding every day during the season alone! Hats off to the Peoples Republic of Skiing.
