Back on the FIS Freestyle World Cup calendar in 2016/17 for the first time since 2013, Beida Lake will once again see the strong Chinese team host aerials competition on home soil.
Beida Lake resort opened in 2005 to become the 3rd largest ski resort in the country, with a top elevation of 1359m, a 537m base elevation, and a vertical drop of 822m.
Designed by the world-renowned Ecosign company based out of Whistler, CAN, Beida Lake features world-class aerials, moguls, slopestyle, and halfpipe venues. The mountain has hosted World Cup aerials and moguls competition since the 2006-2007 season, making it the first Chinese resort to host FIS World Cup competition and making Freestyle the first FIS discipline to hold World Cup competition in the most populous country on Earth.
