Living in the south where has rare snow, many citizens skied for the first time. The first step is always the hardest. Some of them looked tense and stiff, some fell over and over, and others exhausted from practicing. It was hilarious. However, these small accidents did not stop the enthusiasm of the citizens to participate in the winter sports. No one cared about falling over. They just crawled up and then skied. Laughter and joy have been echoing in the ski resort.

Currently, the number of the population involved in winter sports in our city is about 8,000. Moreover, there are about 300 teenagers who have been participating in long-term ice hockey and figure skating practice.
