Child on a slope

Still able to offer its much loved core activities – Lift Passes, Lessons and Snow Fun – albeit with some adjustments, Chill Factore has seen increased overall guest satisfaction across its activities by +14% YoY, whilst introducing new guidelines that ensure the safety of all team members and guests. 

On the Governments latest announcement regarding a new three-tier lockdown approach in local regions, Chill Factore CEO, Morwenna Angove, said: “At Chill Factore we are fully committed to staying open and welcoming snowsports fans to our fantastic real snow slope, and yesterday’s announcement has confirmed that we are still able to do that safely, here in Manchester. 

“We’ve received our “We’re Good To Go” accreditation, and have a number of safety measures already in place to ensure the safety of our guests and staff, including reduced lesson sizes and sanitising equipment. We ask that all guests follow the rules when visiting, but most of all we are that you enjoy spending time on the snow."

All guests must book online and wear face coverings around the attraction and on the slope.
