Create an itinerary including 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. A visit to Chill Factore represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Trafford Park online trip maker to plot your vacation.

  • Had a fantastic private lesson with Lauren T, she helped me regain my confidence and improve my technical skill all within just a one hour lesson. Highly recommend her for instruction.

  • Fantastic facility. Easy to book, easy to check in and all very organised. Helpful staff. Everything you could possibly need including clothing if you don't have your own. Spacious lockers, plenty of choice for food and drink etc. We went at 6pm on a Saturday and found the slope to be fairly quiet. Really great experience and would highly recommend
  • I booked a 5-hour snowboarding lesson. On arrival I was welcomed by a team member who told me the whole booking in process. Picking up the equipment, the clothing and boots was all very seamless. The lesson was great fun and very intensive. We then took a break for food, which was very good. Charlie our instructor, made very pleasant conversation and was interested in knowing what each of his fellow "students of the board" did in life. We then resumed the lesson for a further 2 hours. Charlie made the lesson fun and engaging with all the students being involved. We progressed from nothing to carving our way down the slope. Thank you Charlie P, you made my day.
  • Great place to learn to ski for adults and kids with all equipment provided. I watch from the warmth of the cafe while my daughter does her skiing lessons. Cappuccino is good and the little pots of chips are nice ! There is also a balcony over the snow, but dress warm for the balcony.
  • Very expensive compared to other soft play centres but much bigger. They also have Laser quest and trampoline games which project yourself on a screen in front of you so you're in the game included in the price. The kids enjoyed it, and it wasn't busy at all during the Easter holidays
  • Great place to ski and board on real snow with a long enough slopes to keep it real and interesting. So much better than artificial mat slopes. Really well organised equipment hire area with weighing scales to setup bindings and friendly knowledgeable staff. The higher skis we had ran and carved really well. Very good value for money amenity.
