On-Snow Skiing at Chill Factore

Club Meets take place at Chill Factore during the Saturday 8-9.30am slot for Telemark downhill skiing on the Main slope.

These generally occur every 2 weeks and cost £17.50 (concessions £14.00) for 1½ hours (or use your weekly or monthly pass). Pre‑booking online with Chill Factore is recommended to avoid queues at reception. [Select ‘External Ski Clubs’ from the ‘Lift Pass’ drop down box on Chill Factore Home Page then select ‘Manchester Cross Country Ski Club’.]

SSE Telemark coaches will be available on the booked dates for coaching and support on the main slope.

Introduction to Telemark sessions are also run, please email before coming. Participants must have Alpine ski experience and be able to make turns and control speed from the top of the main slope.

Catch up afterwards with friends over hot chocolate or breakfast in the J.D Whetherspoons next door.

HIRE EQUIPMENT is inclusive of entry cost at Chill Factore.
New Telemark Norm skis and boots are available for hire.
- Head Rev 78 skis, which are a better standard than their normal hire skis, have been fitted with Rottefella NTN releasable, semi step-in bindings.
- Scarpa boots are available in the following Mondo (UK) sizes: 1x26 (7), 1x27 (8), 2x28 (9), 1x29 (10), 1x30 (11).
- There are also some older Salomon skis, fitted with Telemark Norm 7TM bindings, plus a few 75mm Crispi boots.

Allow 15-30 minutes for fitting.

Note Cross country skiers are no longer permitted on the Beginners slope. We are in discussion with Chill Factore management to provide on‑snow practice for these skiers.
