As the 2022 Winter Olympics is going to be held in China, winter sports have become an integral part of the many exhibitions. This is no exception at the China International Import Expo.

On the three-day countdown to the opening of the import fair, an ice experience zone was finished construction and unveiled to the public. With an area of 5,000 square meters, the zone is divided into five areas.

The physical curling rinks, which have been certified by the World Curling Federation, are available for people of all ages to enjoy the fun of curling and the thrill of athletic competition.

For kids, there is also a Super Snow ball made from high-tech materials.“It creates a dreamy world of ice and snow. While playing in the ball, children can feel the joy of ice and snow safely and happily,” explained Ge Yakun, the person responsible for the experience zone.

In the VR experience area, people can have a fully-immersive experience of ice and winter sports such as curling, ice hockey, ice skating, and skiing.

During the six-day CIIE from October 5 to 10, visitors can play in the zone during three opening periods, said Ge. For citizens who want to join in the fun, they can go and play on the extended days of the Expo by making an appointment on http://www.eastday.com/ciie2019/reservation.html.
