Ski the Bird’s Nest

A few months ago I wrote about Beijing being one of the finalist cities in the bid to host the Winter Olympics in 2022. Today, during an afternoon walk around the Olympic Park to clear some of the jet-lag induced fog out of my brain, I came upon this make-shift ski hill that has been set up outside the famous Bird’s Nest Stadium. Could this be, I wondered, a future Olympic venue?

Mostly I think it’s proof once again that we have not, in fact, seen everything!
