Manchester's Chill Factore slope is currently making changes underneath the slope to accommodate "a possible new tenant". The summer maintenance has affected the slope's ability to host its regular freestyle park, and could last for over four weeks. Chief Exec Stephen Evans sent us this update:
"Unfortunately, the disruption caused by this work has meant that we have been unable to put out a freestyle park that meets our usual high standards. We have therefore made the decision to cancel freestyle nights and Monday moguls all together during this period and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
“The disruption is expected to continue for up to four weeks although, as with all maintenance work, we may be forced to extend this. All other snow activities will be open as usual during this period.
“The completion of this work will see the return of freestyle nights to Chill Factore with some new freestyle features, for example, we have just taken delivery of a new wall ride. Plans are still being finalised for the under slope facility but we are able to confirm that this will see the space under the slope being used to significantly increase the range of activities on offer at Chill Factore."
So what's it all about? The mystery deepens!
