"During the past six years, we have worked very closely with the various stakeholders to prepare not just the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 but also the post-Games use," Ivo Ferriani, IBSF president, said after signing the MoU with Chinese partners on the closing day of Beijing 2022.

"Our shared vision was to leave a strong legacy for this outstanding facility, which will serve for top elite-level sports and at the same time for tourism purposes."

The National Sliding Centre, which hosted bobsleigh, skeleton and luge at Beijing 2022, will open the lower and flatter section of its 1.9-kilometer track to the public for recreational use in May. The track experience will complement other activities such as sightseeing, hiking and mountain biking to attract tourists, according to property owner Beijing Enterprise Group Company Ltd.
