The Fifth Yabuli Naked Pig Skiing Festival was held at Yabuli Sun Mountain Ski Resort in Heilongjiang province on Sunday, attracting hundreds of skiing enthusiasts and tourists.

Skiers in bizarre dress — and various degrees of undress — took part in the unique event to bid farewell to the end of the snow season and welcome spring.

The festival, which originated at the Crested Butte Mountain Resort of Colorado in the United States, provides people a good chance to get close to nature by being scantily clad.

Besides the performances, there was a barbecue party and a competition called "Dragon Crossed the River".

Skiers descend from a snowy peak, and their momentum carries them across a 6-meter-long pool.

"The festival is the most popular event during the whole snow season except for opening day," said Sun Ze, a skiing enthusiast. "We can experience wonderful spring skiing and enjoy the cheerful, youthful atmosphere and energy."
