Ten professional skiing trainers from Russia recently moved to the Guaipo Ski Resort in Shenyang, capital of Northeast China's Liaoning province.

The trainers offer skiers better services as winter takes over the city.

Zubairova Angelina Feliksovna, one of the Russian trainers, who picked up the sport at age 10, finds training in China easier than working in the wild back home.

It's the first time Feliksovna has visited China, and she is still adapting to life in Shenyang.

For her, the weather in China is milder than in Russia, but the biggest problem is language.

She's trying to learn Mandarin. And she hopes to better understand China and make more friends at work.

Feliksovna and the other trainers will stay at the ski resort through the winter.
