chill factor e in progress

Currently the largest Snow Centre in the UK . Located at Trafford Park in Manchester and covering 16,000m², Chill Factor E incorporates a 150m long main slope and a 35m long learners slope. It also includes a Snow Play Area and an Ice Slide.

The ski slope concrete structural slab contains our underfloor heating to protect the slab from frost heave. The snow layer on the ski slopes contains a matrix of our PEX pipe filled with chilled glycol to maintain the integrity of the snow layer.
