Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Greater Manchester / Trafford / Stretford / Winter Sports / Chill Factore
When it opened in 2007, Chill Factore was the widest indoor ski center in the world. At 180 m (590 ft) long and 100 m (330 ft) wide, it claims the Guinness Book record for the longest chain of skiers to travel 100 m (330 ft) without breaking. Besides indoor piste skiing, the center also houses Alpine Village and a number of snow activities that don't require strapping on skis, including snow tubing, sledging, air-boarding, a snow zipper, and "Avalanche" snow sphering. The latter puts a rider into a giant ball that rolls down the snowy slope, simulating what it might be like to be inside an avalanche boulder. If you're hungry after your snow sports, visit the Mont Blanc Restaurant on the upper deck of Alpine Village to dine with a view.

I had never skied before until yesterday, it's always been on the bucket list so I was bought vouchers for the Chill Factore by my husband and friends for my 30th birthday. I am still absolutely buzzi... more »
So good. It's a little expensive for me but accept that. I has such a great time and I defintely come back some day. more »
We booked the fun taster ski session as we had no previous experience. We arrived expecting (and as highlighted on the website) an introduction to the equipment and how to fit the skis, and a demonstr... more »
My children took me here as I haven't skied in years. I always told them how much fun it was. They've been there before and coaxed me to go. We had so much fun. You must know how to ski before you go on the slopes, but you can get lessons too. You can hire all equipment there including clothing at a cost. Worth a visit.
Slightly on the decline since the original owners sold it but still very good indoor skiing and dining. Learn to ski in the summer and there are large discounts here. Good staff. Free parking. Can get very busy leading up to and during snow season.
I would just sit in cafe have lunch and watch people have fun. But all window tables always busy. People already finished, and still sitting. On balcony to cold.
Cool place to come and do a bit of skiing or snowboarding. They have lessons available too. It's often busy so be aware as it will limit the amount of time you get on the slopes. Be sure to get your ticket for your shoe size before joining the long line for ski boots. Insides there's changing rooms and lockers (£1). There's places to view if you don't want to go on the slopes. Wrap up warm. Have fun.
Did the beginners day lesson snow-boarding. It was a really good day. I learnt so much, and Danny the instructor was brilliant - very relaxed, friendly and easy to understand. The whole day went so smoothly - lunch and tea/coffee/soft drinks all included. Perfect.
