Chill Factore to host the first ever FIS European indoor mogul championships!

Exciting news!

We’re delighted to announce that on the 12th - 14th September, we will host the world’s first ever FIS European and British Indoor Mogul Championships.

Europe’s best and bravest skiers will tackle a specially built course on our slope which is the longest real-snow ski slope in the UK.

For those of you that don’t know; moguls are naturally formed mounds of snow, and they create explosive and exciting ski runs. Moguls became an Olympic discipline in 1992, and in the early days of moguls it was illegal for athletes to perform inverted jumps and tricks due to the high injury rate. However, they have since been made legal and as a result the sport has become even more popular and exciting!

Future Olympians and some of the world’s top alpine skiers will be coming to the Chill Factore to compete, from successful winter sport nations including Switzerland, Austria and Italy. The event is even attracting competitors from as far away as Japan, including a former Olympic gold medalist who will be bringing his athlete.

From closer to home, some of our Sponsored Riders, who are no strangers to competing with the very best, will be out to claim the title for the UK.

 The FIS British Indoor Mogul Championships will be running alongside the European competition as skiers from the four nations battle it out to be the best in Britain.

 Our Snow Sports Manager, Chris David, said: “We can’t wait to tear some of the world’s best mogul skiers away from the Alps and welcome them to Manchester - we know they are going to love competing here at Chill Factore.”

So come down to check out this world first event, because between 12th and 14th September the moguls will be in Manchester!
