To celebrate Chinese New Year, a 22-meter dragon will ski down the longest indoor snow slope in the UK, on Thursday 23rd January, ahead of the main events in central Manchester.

A dragon on snow you ask? Chinese dragons are widely believed to be the rulers of large bodies of water, so Chill Factore’s cool slope is its perfect sub-zero home and the ideal warm-up to the festivities here in Manchester.

Taking to the slope like a duck to water, the enormous skiing dragon will glide gracefully down the slope, controlled by nine of Chill Factore’s expert instructors and surrounded by mini dragons and lanterns to create a truly snow-stopping display.

A hub for snow-experiences, Chill Factore will be celebrating this annual holiday the only way it knows how – on the snow!

“Chinese New Year is a key holiday in the city as Manchester is rich with Chinese culture. We wanted to celebrate in true Chill Factore fashion – big, bold and on the snow!” (Laura McKiernan, Chill Factore spokesperson)

Want to join the celebrations? Arrive at 08:00 on Thursday 23rd January, and watch the dragon descend the slope from the viewing balconies.
