BEIJING (AP) — Beijing, host of the 2022 Winter Olympic Games, has a snow problem: Hardly any of the stuff falls on the Chinese capital despite freezing temperatures.

Taking the matter in hand, the games organizing committee has formed a “snow affairs work team” and invited experts from Finland, Canada and other nations to help out.

The official “2017 Beijing Fact File” produced by the city government and viewed on Thursday said the work team would “expedite research on key technologies for making and preserving snow, and start to formulate a work plan to ensure suitable snow resources.”

Also on Thursday, Beijing Vice Mayor Zhang Jiandong said all venues and transport links for the games would be completed by the end of 2019, allowing Beijing to begin staging test events the next year.
