Part of the Beijing competition area, Shougang Ski Jump at Big Air Shougang is a newly constructed venue located in the city's Shijingshan district, less than 15 miles west of Beijing's urban core and along the Yongding River. It was built over an old steel mill and completed in late 2019. Existing coolant towers will serve as a backdrop.

It will host snowboarding and freestyle skiing's big air competitions.

Organizers plan for the venue to be permanent after the Games' conclusion, hosting large-scale outdoor activities such as concerts and conferences.

The design concept is derived from the traditional flying style in the Dunhuang murals in China.
