All venues under construction in Zhangjiakou for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics will be completed this year, an official has said.
Governor of Hebei province Xu Qin confirmed the time-frame in a Government work report, according to Xinhua.
Located almost 200 kilometres northwest of the Chinese capital, Zhangjiakou will be a key venue hub in 2022.
It is due to host snowboarding, freestyle skiing, cross-country skiing, ski jumping, Nordic combined and biathlon competitions during the Games.
Venues being built include the National Ski Jumping Center, which officials originally thought would be ready last year.
It will now be put into operation in 2020, Xinhua said.
The Kuyangshu Nordic Center and Biathlon Center and Genting Snow Park are also being prepared while an Olympic Village in Zhangjiakou should be ready by August.
Xu said that his province would work to "develop" the snow and ice industry.
Bringing through talented winter sports athletes is another important goal.
Earlier this month, organisers stated their belief that every 2022 venue in the Beijing and Yanqing zones is progressing as scheduled.
This includes the new "Ice Ribbon" speed skating oval which could host test events in June.
