[edit] Asian Winter Games

The Asian Winter Games is a multi-sport event [1] for members of the Olympic Council of Asia [2] which features winter events.

The Japanese Olympic Committee first suggested the idea of holding a winter version of the Asian Games in 1982. Their efforts were rewarded when they were finally given hosting rights for the first edition that was held in Sapporo in 1986, as the city had the infrastructure and expertise gained from hosting of the 1972 Winter Olympics.

From having only seven member nations of the Olympic Council of Asia [3] taking part in the first edition, the number of nations competing in the Winter Asiad has consistently grown. In the most recent Asian Winter Games in Changchun, 27 out of the 45 members fielded a record number of competitors, while all 45 NOCs sent delegations for the first time ever in Winter Asiad history.


[edit] Development of the Freestyle Competition Courses

The new complex "Tabagan" is located in the Talgar area of Almaty region, near the national nature reserve.

It is 17 km from Almaty. This complex occupies 55 hectares of land, at an elevation of 1650 m above sea level.

The terrain and favorable weather characteristics of this district allow for year-round operation of the complex. During the winter it is used for downhill skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling.
