Northeast China's ice and snow has become an important resource for local economic development. Located at 43 degrees north latitude, Jilin is covered with ice and snow for half of the year. With excellent ice and snow resources, Jilin has formed a snow and ice tourism resource structure with the eight major snowfields, eight hot springs and the eight rime ornamental belts as the main body, not only accelerating the development of the ice and snow tourism industry, but also promoting the popularization process of the ice and snow sports. This city is doing its best to become a famous ice and snow tourism city, a city that is good at winter sports, a city with huge ice and snow industry in China and a world-class ice and snow tourist destination.

Everbright Securities has started China's first ten-billion-yuan ice and snow industry fund in Jilin, in order to further develop the products of rime, hot spring and winter sports.
