The newly built Mazong Mountain Ski Resort in Hohhot, capital city of North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region, officially opened its door on Dec 26.
Its debut marked the start of Hohhot’s winter season this year, which features more than 30 activities involving ice sculpture exhibitions, ice and snow carnivals, as well as ice and snow sightseeing and sports.
It’s a move by the Hohhot government to respond to the call by the State to encourage the public to participate in ice and snow activities and to turn the local rich ice and snow resources into an economic driving force.
