Christmas at Chill Factore at Chill Factore, 22 November–24 December 2019, from £9.50 - Book now

We’d all love a white Christmas but the chances of it stopping raining in Manchester for long enough for snow to stick seem slim… Head to Christmas at Chill Factore for a guaranteed white Christmas will real snow and all the festive fun you can handle.

For all those that think Chill Factore is just for families who have spent time on the slopes, think again. Chill Factore is about much more than just learning to ski and snowboard. There’s loads going on under the roof of the UK’s longest real snow slope, including the UK’s only Santa’s grotto on real snow (open every day from 1st – 24th December). Santa and his helpers have arrived at Chill Factore and invite you to join them in the festivities. In this winter wonderland, children will be able to make Christmas cards for loved ones, and write their own Christmas list, before hand-delivering it to Santa himself.

Depending on the age of your children there are two packages to choose from. The Santa & Snow Park package, for ages 4 years and older, includes a snowy greeting with Santa in the grotto and then a session in the Snow Park, with sledging, downhill tubing and sliding. The Santa & Mini Moose Land package is for 0 – 3 year olds, and after they’ve met Santa they can discover the magic of Mini Moose Land, with soft play, toys, an igloo to explore and miniature sledging ramps. A perfect festive adventure for the littles ones.

Visit Father Christmas at Chill Factore in December and experience Manchester’s very own winter wonderland – and the only guaranteed real snow experience this Christmas!
