South China’s largest indoor ski resort is raising the roof – as in, today, they will literally start installing the roof. 

Pictures of the Guangzhou structure show a massive metal skeleton that will eventually be turned into a 75,000-square-meter indoor ski resort, according to Tencent News.

It reportedly won't open until 2018, but artist renderings of the building sure look purty.

The building will be able to accommodate 3,000 people (at the same time) to enjoy 30 different snow-themed activities. Plans show ski trails for different skill levels and there will even be a toboggan track.

A designer said chemicals will not be used to make the snow, according to the Tencent report. The designer also apparently said they also won’t use "living organisms" to make the snow. So there’s that.
