Major Snow: What makes the winter lovable?
A perfect season for skiing and skating
Snow is welcomed by most Chinese farmers because it can protect crops from cold fronts and keep the lands warm. Additionally, the melted snow can provide enough water for the crops in the spring.
The Chinese even have an old saying for it, “A fall of seasonal snow gives promise of a fruitful year.”
But the snow could promise more than a fruitful year; it also promises a picturesque landscape of silver white and a favorable season for skiing and skating.
Many people prefer to travel to northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province during the winter, for there are quite a handful of attractions – ice sculptures, rime natural scenery and ski resorts – as well as a trip to the country's northernmost village Mohe. All the ingredients for a wonderful winter vacation.
