The Summer Ski Sprint is back with a competition in Yakeshi in Inner Mongolia on June 19th. In total there will be 20 foreigners and 20 Chinese skiers fighting for the fame and glory. The concept and scale will be almost identical to the event in Yakeshi last year with the change that after the skiing on June 19th the international skiers will continue to Changchun in Jilin Province and participate in the Vasa Cross Country Running Festival (www.vasarun.com). After the skiing and running events the international skiers will go to Beijing for a few days before going back home.

More details coming soon.
