Snowtek 2018

Chill Factore has teamed up with Snow+Rock and sports engineers to celebrate science in the ‘coolest’ way with Snowfest. Showcasing everything from the physics of flips to the latest advances in body armour, and auxetic materials, as well as insights into how snow gear is tested in the lab, Snowtek has it all. The whole thing takes place during Chill Factore’s Boobytrap Freestyle Event where ski and snowboard enthusiasts can see Manchester’s finest freestyle fanatics take on the slope or even get involved themselves.

We will be hosting a number of stands and demos both off the snow and on the snow to delight guests and demonstrate the latest scientific advances in snow sports. Some of the demos and showcases will require you to be a competent skier or snowboarder to take part. But don’t worry if you you’ve never skied before, there is plenty of interesting things to discover at Snowtek.
