BOSSES at Chill Factore has announced that it will be re-opening its 180m slope in Manchester from August 17 but ski fans have to be braced for changes.

Opening hours, lesson sizes and the number of activities on offer to make sure guests can be safely socially distanced at all times.

The team will be wearing PPE and protective screens have been installed at the main Guest Reception, along with multiple sanitising stations for guests to use on arrival, during their visit, and when they leave. In addition, snow fans must pre-book their tickets online and collect them from the self-service machines.
