Manchester Ski Racing is based at Chill Factore (MSR)

The club was formed in 2012 is predominantly an Alpine Ski Club that will provide a development path way for skiers who wish to progress to the various disciplines of indoor and outdoor ski racing.

Where do we train

We are based at Chill Factore, Manchester, the UK's longest indoor snow slope. Chill Factore is situated at Trafford Quays Leisure Village, opposite The Trafford Centre, and located just off junction 10 of the M60 motorway. Chill Factore is signposted from the motorway exit but its such a landmark shape you cant miss it. Parking is free and there are 300+ spaces.

The training sessions run at Chill Factore are conducted by qualified coaches who are employees of Chill Factore and not Manchester Ski Racing. The club provides a focused and friendly group who's goal is to support skiers development. Unfortunately the club do not provide training sessions at Chill Factore.
