On Jan 23, the third batch of national-level ski tourism resorts was announced. Among the seven successful entries nationwide, the Changbai Mountain Ski Resort in the Chibei area of Northeast China's Jilin province was listed, potentially becoming the province's fifth national-level ski resort destination.

Prior to this announcement, Jilin province was already home to four national-level ski resorts, including Lake Songhua Resort, Changbai Mountain Wanda International Resort, Beidahu Ski Resort, and Wanfeng Tonghua Ski Resort.

To date, a total of 26 resorts have become national-level ski resort destinations, with Jilin province holding five spots, the highest number nationwide. These national-level ski resort destinations were designated by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the General Administration of Sports.

Leveraging its abundant ice and snow resources, Jilin has been actively promoting the development of its ice and snow economy. It is focusing on cultivating new momentum for this sector and transforming its "cold resources" into "hot industries".

Jilin is now home to 75 ski resorts, making it a popular destination for winter activities. The Changbai Mountains offer exceptional winter resources and are considered one of the world's top three powder snow destinations, alongside the Swiss Alps and the Rocky Mountains.
