In November this year, the Plan on Outdoor Sports Industry Development (2022-2025) was released to accelerate the development of the Beijing-Zhangjiakou Sports Cultural Tourism Corridor and promote winter sports in northeastern China, northern China and northwestern China. A leading area for winter sports, with international influence in northern China, is to be established. Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism released eight routes for the Beijing-Zhangjiakou Sports Cultural Tourism Corridor. The eight routes include abundant cultural tourism and sports resources, including winter sports activities, cultural experiences, outdoor leisure activities, ecological healthcare resorts, and short-term accommodations and vacations, which will help tourists who love sports and traveling to have a comprehensive understanding of the cultural charm of Beijing and Zhangjiakou. By announcing these routes, the Bureau also aims to continue to make the most of the venues built for the Olympic Games in the post-Winter Olympics era and contribute to the popularization of winter sports.
