Does Spanish have an equivalent for this idiom? It means that there is slim to no chance of something happening.

He hasn't got/He's got a snowball's chance in Hell of winning the competition. - He will not win.

Thanks.

    We've got a funny one which is "cuando las ranas críen pelo".. that is, never.

    Ganará la competición cuando las ranas críen pelo.

    That's an option...

    Good luck!

    I'd never heard Scaque's idiom before... :cool: Now I've learned something new today.

    In Mexico you would say: Ni de broma.
    Ni de broma gana.
    Ni de broma ella acceptará salir con él.

    :)

    Ni de coña...
    Ni por asomo...
    Ni patrás (ni para atrás...)

    :)

    Otra variante no tan cercana podría ser: "para el año del níspero" (ganará) o "antes tendría que caerse el cielo"
