冰雪经济又被叫做白色经济，它是指利用冰雪开展相关旅游项目和运动项目，逐渐形成一条经济链。伴随着 2022 年冬奥会热度以及国家政策的大力支持，我国冰雪产业已经驶入快车道。2019 年，我国冰雪产业市场规模已经突破 5000 亿元。2020 年突如其来的疫情使得我国冰雪产业受到重创，市场规模也大幅下滑。不过，在国内疫情得到有效控制下，我国冰雪产业已经开始复苏。以冰雪旅游为例，据中国旅游研究院预测，2020/2021 冰雪季我国冰雪旅游业将迎来极大反弹，预计冰雪旅游人数将达到 3900 亿人次，收入规模将超 3900 亿元。
Ice and snow economy is also called white economy. It refers to the use of ice and snow to carry out relevant tourism and sports projects, and gradually form an economic chain. With the popularity of the 2022 Winter Olympic Games and the strong support of national policies, China's ice and snow industry has entered the fast lane. In 2019, the market scale of China's ice and snow industry has exceeded 500 billion yuan. The sudden epidemic in 2020 has severely damaged China's ice and snow industry, and the market scale has also declined sharply. However, with the domestic epidemic under effective control, China's ice and snow industry has begun to recover. Take ice and snow tourism as an example. According to the prediction of China Tourism Research Institute, China's ice and snow tourism will rebound greatly in the ice and snow season 2020 / 2021. It is expected that the number of ice and snow tourists will reach 390 billion person times and the income scale will exceed 390 billion yuan.
Ice and snow economy has a strong driving role. Ice and snow sports need high-level supporting services, leisure facilities, equipment, transportation, accommodation, shopping and so on. This has a strong driving effect on the development of hotel industry, transportation industry, catering industry and tourism in the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain. In addition, the ice and snow economy has strict requirements on environment, climate and terrain. It is generally developed in some small towns, which also provides an opportunity for the development of small towns with Chinese characteristics. Ice and snow town is a characteristic town that integrates ice and snow sports, vacation, leisure and entertainment into an ecosystem for overall operation. In recent five years, with the continuous warming of ice and snow tourism and the increasing popularity of ice and snow towns, ice and snow towns currently occupy an important position in ice and snow tourism. It is expected that under the positive influence of the Winter Olympic Games, the heat of China's ice and snow towns will continue to rise.
