What are the minimum requirements to use the Main Slope on a Lift Pass?

Lift Pass requirements

In order to use your lift pass here at Chill Factore there are minimum standards, we ask that you:

If you’re not sure you meet all of the above requirements or need access to our beginner slope, it is best to book a Ski or Snowboard Lesson (only Chill Factore lessons can access our beginner slope) for more guidance before getting a lift pass. If you are missing these requirements and go on a lift pass you will be asked to leave the main slope for your’s and others safety and your pass will not be refunded.

While we recommend wearing a mask in an indoor environment, this will be your personal choice and will not be mandatory for guests or for our team. We ask that you respect each person’s own decision, and we will continue to provide a safe and clean environment for you to fully enjoy your visit.

Why are the features out on select dates?

We know how much our guests love to practice their skills on the slope and we want to give you the opportunity to ride the features as much as possible. To help maintain the quality of our snow during the peak period we will host two features on the slope per week on Wednesdays to Fridays. During the summer period, we host more 3rd Party Events so to provide our guests with maximum exposure, we have the features out from Thursday to Saturday.

***From the 3rd of November for the Winter season Terrain Challenges will be available on Thursdays & Fridays 10am to 10pm***

*Where pre-organised events are scheduled for Fridays or Saturdays, changes may apply. Please see our Events calendar for details.
