Book a holiday and then learn to ski for free at Chill Factore

The fantastic new offer for skiing beginners

Crystal Ski Holidays have teamed up with indoor snowsports centre Chill Factore in Manchester to offer a new Ski for Free initiative that is aimed at breaking down the barriers to snowsports participation.


The initiative, which in essence gives people free ski lessons if they then go on to book a beginner ski holiday with Crystal, is supported by Snowsport England who aim to get more people into skiing and snowboarding across the UK.


Those new to skiing and snowboarding will be able to choose from one of three beginner lesson packages, a full one-day lesson, a two-day lesson or a week-long course*. The price of the beginner packages are then redeemable against a beginner’s holiday with Crystal.


Crystal Ski Holidays said: “We always seek to make snow sports more accessible, more fun and better value. This new initiative with Chill Factore allows anyone to take a beginner ski course and then redeem that cost against a ski holiday saving £120 per person which we think is undoubtedly great value”.


Morwenna Angove, CEO from Chill Factore said: “We are delighted to spearhead this new initiave with Crystal Holidays.  At Chill Factore, guests new to Snowsports can learn on a slope that is safe and exhilarating, as well as being similar to an Alpine environment with real snow.”


Bookings for the Ski for Free ski or snowboard packages can be made on the Chill Factore website


£120 discount on a Crystal holiday will be redeemed by providing the booking confirmation at the Crystal retail shop, Chill Factore before 31st October 2016 (; 020 8939 0726).
