Beijing 2022
Beijing, the capital of China, is a world-renowned historical and cultural city as well as a modern metropolis. It is also a city embracing a tradition of winter sports, and has a world-class venue legacy from the 2008 Games. Closely adjoining Beijing, Zhangjiakou is an emerging hot spot for snow sports in China with well-developed ski and hotel facilities.

Beijing 2022 has planned three Games zones: Beijing, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou. The Beijing zone will provide the venues for the opening and closing ceremonies as well as the ice sports competitions. The Yanqing zone will host the bobsleigh, skeleton and luge as well as Alpine skiing competitions.

Biathlon and all the skiing events, except Alpine skiing, will take place in the Zhangjiakou zone. Both the Yanqing and Zhangjiakou zones are located to the north-west of the Beijing zone along the Yanshan mountain range. With favourable temperatures, average freeze periods and snow depths, as well as wind speeds, these two locations are ideal for the snow sports competitions of Beijing 2022.

Of the 12 proposed competition venues, six already exist, minimising the cost of venue construction and demonstrating the concept of sustainable development. Six will be newly built, with three of them planned regardless of the Games.

In addition to satisfying all technical requirements, and with approval from all International Federations, the distribution of the venues in the three zones will maximise opportunities for post-Games use, benefiting the development of Olympic winter sports in and around Beijing and encouraging more people to participate.

The three zones will be connected by a high-speed railway and a number of expressways. The high-speed railway will reduce the travel time between the Beijing and Zhangjiakou zones to 50 minutes (station to station). Within each zone, all the venues are linked by high-standard roads and convenient public transport, and are within five to 15 minutes of the Olympic Villages, to ensure the athletes’ easy participation in the competitions.
