Harbin Sunac Snow World, an indoor ski resort in “Ice City”, reopened with upgraded snow tracks on April 1 after a month of renovations.

Located in Songbei district, Sunac Snow World started operating on June 30, 2017 and is open year-round. Covering an area of 80,000 square meters, it has six professional ski tracks with a variety of slopes. The longest ski track is about 500 meters long with a maximum drop of 80 meters. It can accommodate up to 3,000 visitors at once.

To provide visitors with a better skiing experience, four medium and high-level snow tracks covering 35,400 sq were replaced with artificial snow after a month of renovations starting on March 1.
