Over the recent two years, Suzhou has seen many ice rinks and indoor skiing gyms springing up, which is leading to the increasing popularity of the sport of skiing among the citizens. Recently, Suzhou Sports Bureau and several other government departments jointly recommended 28 good places for summer workouts. Mr. Mont Skiing Gym in SIP is on the list.
According to Liu Bo, general manager of the gym currently with over 400 members, they have industry-leading skiing machines and professional courses tailored for people of different ages.
"The distance of one-hour skiing on the machine is equal to that of six-hour skiing on outdoor ski slopes. Besides, the coaches can stop the machines at any time to give instructions to the trainees, and there is mirror in front of each machine for the trainees to check their performance," Liu said.
Marketing Director Chen Anjin revealed that they are planning to launch cooperation with local enterprises and schools in skiing training, hoping to further popularize the sport in the city.
