Chill Factore


Your next family adventure is here!

The UK’s longest real snow slope Chill Factore, has more activities than you can shake a ski pole at, whether it’s skiing, snowboarding or sledging in their fun Snow Park, there’s something for everyone. If these amazing activities don’t tempt you onto the snow then their offers will!

If the kids are keen to try a new sport, book onto a ski or snowboard Fun Taster session. These 50 minute taster sessions are the perfect introduction to snowsports, often providing the basics needed before booking onto a course ahead of the season or simply a fun family activity for February half term.

Or why not head to Chill Factore’s recently revamped Snow Park for an exhilarating day out as a family. Kids aged 4 and above can sledge, slide and race down the snow slope in double donuts. Don’t want the fun to end? Double your time on the real snow for just £5.

Can’t decide? Treat the kids to both with a money saving combo, which includes both the Snow Park and a Fun Taster lesson.

Looking to learn for your ski holiday? Book onto a Ski or Snowboard Beginner lesson for just £125. You’ll be given six hours of tuition from our expert instructors that can be taken over one, two or three days, meaning you can learn at a pace that suits you. What’s more, if you don’t pass your beginner course the first time around, Chill Factore will provide you with more lessons free of charge!

There's even something for little ones aged 3 and under! Discover real snow in Mini Moose Land, play hide ‘n’ seek and enjoy mini sledging. It’s the perfect place for tiny tots, plus adults go free.


Located just off Junction 10 of M60 head towards the Trafford Centre and you’ll see the iconic slope shaped building on the Manchester skyline. Please note that Chill Factore has FREE parking for all visitors.

Chill Factore - Review - 10th May, 2017

Chill Factore – Review

 Screen Shot 2017-05-10 at 11.24.15


We had a fantastic day out at the Chill Factore in Manchester in Trafford Park. We took two families of four and arrived early on Sunday morning.

Chill Factore is massive and the UK’s longest indoor ski slope. Driving up we were amazed by the size of the building, it’s a real landmark.

We had booked in to a 2 hour session for the two families and this would have cost us around £90 a family peak time or £70 off peak.

You can hire all the clothes you need but this does add on to your cost so we strongly suggest you bring plenty yourself. To hire jacket and trousers is £8 a person.


You will definitely need boots, gloves, thick socks and waterproof trousers and jacket. Everyone is supplied with a helmet, trainers are really not suitable. We did use the gear sullied by Chill Factore and we all agreed the fit was spot. The clothing was very comfy and everyone remained happy and warm, a big deal when your out with the kids.


The building is full of interesting shops should you arrive early. There is opportunity to book your next skiing holiday, buy all the skiing gear you will need for it and there is also a haven for bike enthusiasts! We arrived a little early and enjoyed a Costa coffee, bit more in our price range!


The snow is real and the kids loved it!

We spent a good 1.5 hours tubing, sledging and generally mucking about in the snow.  There is a great section for little toddlers and you could take kids age 2 to adult on a day out here as there is an activity for everyone.


We noticed they ran toddler sessions in the week for around £8 called Play ‘N’ Cake – if I lived near and had a toddler I would definitely be checking this out. As a new mum I was always looking for a new toddler group or activity to do with my child in the week.

We took four children with us and Heath age 6 had a blast, Poppy and Lowri age 7 really enjoyed all aspects and the great variety on offer. However Evie that little bit older age 8 year olds could be caught eagerly looking to the big slope. Ideally she would have preferred a lesson on the big slope or possibly Airboarding.

Screen Shot 2017-05-10 at 11.23.52 

All adults had really had enough after 1.5 hours of sledging and like Evie we’d have liked a lesion or something a bit more…….well honestly big and fast.

However we took some small children with us, so the Snow Park Pass was a good compromise for everyone.

I think with bigger children this would have been a 5/5 review but the cost for the time we spent brough it to a 4/5 - but over all a really good half day out!
