Some readers may have heard that Chill Factore had problems with the snow and indeed they did but with some smart planning and a lot of hard work, the place is back to its best. The snow is excellent, firm and predictable. Management has clearly taken on board a lot of suggestions and there is a very positive feel about... More

After coming all the way up from Cornwall and having not been skiing for 15 years I was nervous but really excited. The woman who fitted my boots literally couldn't have been more helpful, I think she was called Harriet. Within 2 minutes of putting my boots on I knew there and then they would not be staying on because... More

The slope was not well maintained at all, either thick snow or ice like conditions. We are intermediate skiers and perfectly able to ski down a short slope like this and coming down this slope bought absolutely no pleasure. One second thick snow, the next ice and practically see the matting. Then the crazy kids snow boarding who knocked down... More

Having been members of Chill Factore for quite sometime and with me using the main slope for 5/6 years and my 5 year old daughter taking lessons on saturday's i was quite appalled at the whole experience. firstly on arrival the party group (including small children) were left waiting for 45 minutes. we were told that a member of staff...

Had a brilliant time at the chill factor. We took part in the ski taster session that lasted 50 minutes. Surprised at the amount of skiing we actually managed to get through and it left us wanting to do more! Recommend highly! All gear provided free of charge, make sure to take gloves (compulsory) and hat. Plenty of places to... More

All staff very friendly and helpful in getting us newbies started! The group was split into 2 smaller groups of 8 which was the perfect amount. Our instructor, Brad, was excellent - patient and very good at showing us how to do different things. We managed to fit in a lot of different starter techniques into the session, trying out... More

This was our first time at the Chill Factore and we booked Snow Park Activities for our kids: 10, 8 and 3. We also went wit family friends and their 10 year old boy. It was quick and simple with no queues to get kitted out and ready. The kids loved the helmets and snow boots. We were pleased and... More
