The newly-built National Alpine Ski Center (NASC) in Beijing's Yanqing district, the main venue for the 2022 Winter Olympics, is ready for its first Olympics test event, the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Yanqing Stop.

From Feb. 15 to 16, the "Meet in Beijing" Winter Olympics Test Event will feature men's downhill and super slalom races in the NASC. This will be the first time for China to host an international alpine skiing speed event. Prior to the test event, the National Winter Games will also hold its alpine skiing event in the NASC from Jan. 16 to 20.

To meet the needs of the first test race, the NASC racing track, training track, and related technical roads have all been completed. The water supply, power, and communication systems have been connected, the construction of weather radar has been completed, and the relevant ropeway systems have been put to use. 

The snow-making work, started last November, has been basically completed. The track is now covered with 1.2-meter-thick snow, making a spectacular scenery. The next step is to start spraying water on the track to make ice-like snow in late January.
