Education in schools should nurture students' interests and improve their skills in winter sports, according to the guideline made public Friday.
Governments were asked to improve related policies and set up standards for social resources to engage in promoting the popularization of winter sports on campus.
The northern parts of the country were asked to step up efforts to further support the development of winter sports, while other parts were encouraged to roll out catch-up measures based on their own natural and economic conditions.
