The city of Beijing in China will be the host city of the Olympic Winter Games in 2022, which will make it the first city to have hosted both the summer and winter Olympics. Beijing will host the opening and closing ceremonies and the indoor ice events. The sliding events (bobsled, luge, skeleton) and some alpine skiing will be held at Xiaohaituo Mountain in Yanqing County, an outlying subdivision of Beijing located about 80 km/55 miles northwest of the city center. Other skiing events will be at the Taizicheng ski area in Zhangjiakou, about 220 km/140 miles from Beijing.
The games will be from 4 to 20 February 2022. The games will be followed by the Winter Paralympic Games, 4 to 13 March 2022.
Tickets for Olympic Games are often heavily oversubscribed. There is usually a different application process for residents of the host country than for foreign visitors.
Ticket arrangements are likely to be announced 2-3 years before the games start, with the application process starting about 1 year before the start.
