Chill Factore

Cockermouth Ski Club are heading to the Trafford Centre on Sunday 16 November to brush up on our alpine skills at the Chill Factore indoor snow dome.

The mini-bus will be leaving Cockermouth Main Street at 8am (outside Cockermouth Travel) and getting back to Cockermouth at about 8pm that evening. The mini-bus is free for Club members who have paid their subs for 2014 and £10 for all others.

Those coming along need to book and pay for their time on the slopes and / or lessons with the Chill Factore direct ( and in advance. Please don’t book any slope time that starts before 11am on the day and we’ll be leaving Manchester at 5 pm.

The trip is open to non-members (even if they want to just go shopping for the day!) as long as they pay £10 for the mini-bus.

Please let me know if you would like to come along by the 7 November at the latest. I’ll book a table for lunch at 1pm (probably Nando’s as last time) so also let me know if you want to be included in this. The £10 travel costs can be paid to me on the day (cheques payable to Cockermouth Ski Club) but please don’t tell me you’re going to come and then change your mind!
