Snowman in trouble | Snowproblem | Chill Factore

Local children from Altrincham, Cheshire have had their dreams come true. Yesterday their snowman was saved from the changes in temperature in the North West. The lucky snowman named Frosty was rescued from his certain demise and re-homed here at Chill Factorᵉ. He is now our coolest new resident.


Patrick McDade, aged seven, and his sisted Orlagh, aged six, built their giant snowman, which stands at over 6 feet tall, with the help of their parents Ian and Andrea, on Wednesday 30th January.


The McDade family planned to make the most of their snow day by building a small snowman, but things quickly snowballed. Rolling shapes from snow on the parkland opposite, the family had to enlist the help of five passers-by to lift Frosty’s – the name given to him by Orlagh – giant head atop his body.



Having spotted the magnificent snow specimen on Facebook, the Chill Factorᵉ team stepped in to save Frosty from an untimely, and rather wet, end. He is now able to keep his cool away from the sun.


Ian commented: “St Vincent’s, the school the kids are at, had a snow day so we decided to build a snowman all together as a family. He only started small, but it escalated and he grew to a huge height! The kids are so excited he’ll get to live in Chill Factore and we can go and visit him.”


Morwenna Angove, CEO at Chill Factore, said: “Frosty epitomises everything great about snow – he’s big, bold and all about having fun with the family, and we wanted to save him while we still had the chance.Frosty the Snowman


“We have over 1,600 tonnes of snow here and a temperature of - 4°C, so we are the best place to make sure Frosty is kept cool, and lives on whatever the weather.”


Come and meet Frosty in Mini Moose Land, as seen on BBC North West Tonight!
