With the awarding of the 2022 Olympics to Beijing, the Chinese ski industry has been thrust into the public eye.

In November 2015, BASI ran its' first snowboard instructor training courses in Chongli, China - the town that will host many of the snowsports events in 2022. BASI now run courses in a number of Chinese resorts and cities in China.

It may surprise you to learn that China’s first ski resorts have been running for decades, that the Chinese dome scene rivals the one we have in the UK, that dry slopes are now being built throughout China, a healthy club scene is emerging and that the Chinese even possess a serious claim to the origins of the sport!

It is now generally agreed that skiing was invented independently in two parts of the world in pre-historic times; Scandinavia and what is now Western China.  Cave paintings have been found in the Altai mountain range in Xinjiang province depicting what could be interpreted as skiers chasing cattle and horses,  and it is possible that these are proof of the beginnings of a continuous, if small and isolated, skiing culture that continues to this day.
