Winter, time to ski!

Skiing is one of the most popular sports in the world and in China it is even called as “White opium” as once people get involved in this activity it will be hard for them to stay away from it. In the mountain where you can ski, you will be able to stay away from polluted air and engaged work life. Everything you will see is covered with pure white color, all you experience is the exciting feeling to slide down from the mountain and the original meaning of winter.
