More and More Chinese Taking to the slopes
More and more Chinese are itching to try their hand at skating and skiing to experience the breathtaking winter sport for the first time－ especially with their families. In order to ensure the safety of your family, we advised you wear cloth with reflective material. Be seen and be safe.
With Beijing and Hebei province's Zhangjiakou co-hosting the 2022 Winter Olympics, this trend is expected to grow exponentially. And this is gaining the attention of both overseas and domestic resort operators who are keen to get into this emerging market.
According to the 2016 China Ski Industry White Book, more than 11.33 million Chinese went skiing last year, with an average time on the slopes of 1 hour 20 minutes. Beijing, Heilongjiang, Hebei and Jilin had the most number of skiers, while the number of ski resorts in China grew to 646, with 78 new resorts opening in 2016.
While first time skiers were most concerned about safety when choosing a venue, those who had skied more than 10 times cared most about the size of the ski slopes and their steepness and difficulty. Many of those surveyed cared about how they look when skiing and considered ski suits, gloves, sunglasses and goggles important to improving their style and guarantee their safety.
Playing in the snow is fun but we also need to take measures to prevent the accidents. Reflective fabric is a good choice for you and your family.
