The Beijing Ice Training Base in the Yanqing District of Beijing has completed ice-making, and its supporting facilities are in the final debugging phase, local authorities said.
The base has a building area of more than eight hectares, including a comprehensive training hall, teaching management apartment, and other ancillary facilities. The pavilion is a combination of a rounded square and a semicircle, with eight full-sized ice rinks.
As temperatures vary from place to place within the rink, each rink is equipped with a dehumidification system and an air conditioning system to regulate the temperature.
“It not only ensures the smooth training and competition for the athletes but also ensures a comfortable watching experience for the spectators,” said Yu Jian, secretary of the Party branch of the base.
After completion, the base will meet the professional training and competition needs of curling, ice hockey, speed skating, and other ice sports, and will be open to the public at the appropriate time.
Located in northern Beijing, the Yanqing competition zones will host Alpine skiing, bobsleigh and luge competitions during the 2022 Winter Olympic Games.
