Saibei China
New lift Chinese province Hebei, 270 km North of Beijing. In March 2006, Michael Seeber, president of the company LEITNER group and Alessandro Marzola, son of the Dolomiti Superski founder, Gianni Marzola, travelled to China and signed the contract for the installation of the completely new “Dolomite-style” ski resort. Due to its geographical position, its climate and its high population figure, Hebei focuses on the development of ski tourism. The planned ski resort, named Saibei, should emerge in the yet uninhabited valley in the district of Chongli. Among 15 slopes and 6 ropeways, the two South Tyrolean experts in ski tourism plan the construction.

FIS News
Heavy rainfalls during the night from October 23rd - October 24th, 2006 and very high temperatures badly damaged the excellently prepared race course in Sölden (AUT). While all precautions were taken by the organizers, the residual amount of snow and the continuing forecast for high temperatures made it technically impossible to hold the World Cup events on the original race course. FIS’s annual information session for the attending journalists, known as the Forum Alpinum that was planned to coincide with the Season Opener, was also cancelled.
Cross-Country World Cup
A total of four Viessmann FIS World Cup Cross-Country races are scheduled to take place next weekend, on 28th - 29th October in Düsseldorf (GER). For the 5th time, the season starts with sprint races, individual and team, on the bank of the river Rhine in the Old Town of the state capital. Some 146 athletes from 23 countries are registered to participate, which is more than in the last four years. Some typical “distance racers” will also start in Düsseldorf, such as Olympic Champion Katerina Neumannova (CZE), hoping to begin collecting World Cup points. On the men’s side, Peter Larsson, the four-time Düsseldorf winner, will try to defend his unique streak.

Swiss Snowboard dominance in Sölden (AUT)
Like in the past several years, a Swiss rider took home victory in the first parallel giant slalom in the NOKIA Snowboard FIS World Cup. On the ladies’ side, Fränzi Kohli took her career-first World Cup win, also proving her ability to step into the shoes of her retired team mates Daniela Meuli and Ursula Bruhin. Kohli prevailed against Austria’s Doresia Krings who thereby missed her personal hat trick in Sölden. Isabella Laboeck (GER), Junior World Championship runner up in 2005, achieved a small sensation placing fourth as she had never before made the finals (top xx).

As of today there are 100 days remaining until the start of the 39th FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Åre (SWE) from 3rd-18th February, 2007. “In skiing terms, the Åre team has now finished its warm-up and is waiting in the pre-start area, ready to go to the starting line and get on the course,” commented FIS President Gian Franco Kasper this major milestone for Åre. He added: “We at FIS are very positively attuned and looking forward to great championships. The Åre 2007 team has done a 100% job in all the planning and preparation; as a host venue, there are indeed few sites that bring as much know-how to the table. The racing schedule, too, has been planned with possible weather changes in mind, and it provides some options should the weather not cooperate. The organizing committee has also taken maximum advantage of the combination of experience and youthful ideas it entails. We are optimistic that the myriad of ideas will also help create a true championships atmosphere in Åre, such as the promotional activities that will commence following this milestone, in the local media and on Swedish television. Of course, early successes by local athletes will also do wonders for creating the right mood among the public. From an overall perspective, FIS is pleased to note how these championships have acted as a catalyst for many positive changes in the Åre region, all of which will serve to leave a great legacy for the resort for years to come.”

Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (Yulong Mountain) is the southernmost glacier in the Northern Hemisphere. Consisting of 13 peaks, among which Shanzidou is the highest one with an altitude of 5,600 meters (18,360 feet), Jade Dragon Snow Mountain stretches a length of 35 kilometers (22 miles) and a width of 20 kilometers (13 miles). Looking from Lijiang Old Town in the south which is 15 kilometers (nine miles) away, the snow-covered and fog-enlaced mountain resembles a jade dragon lying in the clouds, hence, the name Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.
The 13 peaks, which have the altitudes of at least 4,000 meters, are covered by snow all year round; the mountain is called the "Natural Glacier Museum" for it has all types of glacier. Move down from the mountaintop and you can see rivers and pools, which are formed by the thawed snow water running along the valley and through the forests. The plants and the animals are different according to the altitude, so are the views. Every sight brings you a surprise and every step takes you to a new scene. Each of the meadows on Jade Dragon Snow Mountain has its own special character due to their different landscape and height
Vertical Drop: 3794 ft
Top Elevation: 14822 ft
