    Because they are amateur first timers, notice they are all on the bunny hill. Not many people in China ski/snowboard. You see the one photo of the pro with tinted goggles.
    Also notice no one is wearing helmets other than the pro. Or just warring their regular winter jackets instead of ski jackets. Most first time skiers don't want to commit spending $1000 on gear before knowing if they will go back or continue skiing.

    I probably spend more than $10k on all my snowboarding gear, board, boots and lift passesfor the last 20 years, buy then I live 1 hour from some of the best snow in the world for boarding and go almost weekly before.

    PiSigma is correct. I've seen many,many photos of people in China skiing without the proper gear.

    by Xinhua writers Wang Zichen, Shi Linjing

    ZHENGZHOU/BRUSSELS, Feb. 6 (Xinhua) -- A diamond is forever but its chemical composition is just carbon, the fourth most abundant element in the universe.

    Before being cut and polished to what may cost over 2,000 U.S. dollars per carat -- one-fifth of a gram, or the weight of two grains of rice, diamonds have traditionally been mined from earth where they were forged in extreme pressure and heat over millennia.

    Companies in China and elsewhere have mastered the technologies to manufacture them en masse in a matter of weeks or days, with the products practically indistinguishable from those mined from earth.

    China, long a major consumer of mined diamonds, now has a realistic chance to become a supplier of man-made ones and shape the industry, analysts said, but the scenario for substitution -- when consumers become indifferent to provenance -- is far from certain and depends on public perception.
