A video from Janek Zdzarski:
and a gallery of photos from Huang Jiwei:

Thanks to Jeremy Goldkorn and to Joel Martinsen, both at danwei.org. Mr. Martensen mentions that Mr. Huang 'prefaced [his photos with] a quote from the poet Yin Lichuan, "When it snows, the northern capital becomes northern peace," a line that plays on the capital's current and former names: Beijing (北京) vs. Beiping (北平).'
