Another record for the largest indoor snow centre
The world’s new largest indoor snow centre, due to open in Harbin, China, this summer, will have at least one additional world first.

Conveyor lift specialists Sunkid will unveil a world first conveyor belt with motorised handrail.

“The motorised handrail opens up entirely new options in person transport for the conveyor belt,” a statement from the company claims, adding,
“Where skiers always used to experience a loss of comfort during the ride as the person conveyor belt's pitch increased, the conveyor belt with integrated handrail now offers best comfort for the users.”

Sunkid will install two 150 metres long conveyor belts, complete with the new handrail, with a maximum pitch of 27.5% at the Wanda Harbin indoor snow centre which is due to open this August 2017.
