General

Extreme Cool Limited trading as Chill Factore will endeavour to provide a service to you with reasonable care and skill. Your safety and enjoyment are our prime concern. We want to ensure that you have as much fun as possible in a safe environment.

All guests need to keep tickets for their activities on them at all times. If a ticket is lost, please go to the Guest Services desk and a new one will be issued, providing you have your original booking reference number.

If skiing or snowboarding on the main slope, you will be asked to sign a disclaimer form to state and confirm that you meet the minimum standards, which are; to control speed and direction; to perform linked turns; to stop and to use the button lift unassisted. Chill Factore reserves the right to ask you to leave the Slopes or the Snow Park if you are deemed unable to meet the Minimum Recreational Standard or if we feel you are intoxicated by drink or drugs. In such cases no refund or transfer will be given.

Guests who are pregnant are required to obtain a letter from their Doctor/GP confirming they are physically able to take part in Chill Factore activities. This documentation needs to be provided to your instructor/host on the day of your activity prior to commencing your activity. Failure to provide documentation may result in you being refused entry and no refund/reimbursement will be offered. Guests are responsible for declaring any medical conditions which may affect their ability to partake or put their health at risk. In the absence of negligence or fraudulent misrepresentation, neither Chill Factore nor its employees or agents shall be responsible for the death, personal injury or illness of any guest whilst on Chill Factore premises.

Tickets are needed to enter the snow box, however there is a viewing window and two balconies that look over the slope. One balcony can be entered via the Mont Blanc Cafe and the other from the Sports Bar. Please note that viewing areas for spectators are free to use, however they aren't always guaranteed to be open or available for use.

Junior rates are applicable to those aged 16 and under and over 65’s. Those aged 17 years and over will be charged at adult rates. Chill Factore reserves the right to require proof of age. Student rates are only available on production of a valid NUS card for lift pass products only. An adult (17 or over) must accompany children under 10 years on the slope if skiing/snowboarding recreationally or in the snowfun / snowplay areas.

All prices stated are subject to change.

Please note that if a session time falls between the peak and off peak times, the price is calculated accordingly.

Neither Chill Factore nor its employees or agents shall be responsible for any loss, theft or damage to valuables or any personal property that belongs to any guest whilst on Chill Factore property.
