This is the seventh visit to the Chill Factore. Ten  young people accepted our invite to gain or further hone their skills on the slopes of Trafford Park, oops I should say Trafford Quays Leisure Village. Everybody arrived on time to be kitted out for a one o’clock start. The group had a mix of skills, some members having attended previous sessions and those making their first visit. After being introduced to our coordinator for the event, Jen, the group were assigned to the relevant instructor dependent upon ability. There were a few spills, collisions and falls, during the two hour session but no real harm done.  After the skiing and snowboarding the participants, accompanied by one of the parents, faced the challenge of the wall climb.

Nandos’ is opposite the climbing wall and is always chosen by the young people for the evening meal. After taking the order, which seems to have an endless list of options, whatever happened to a simple question “ salt and vinegar?”, the meals were served and  devoured before all of the attendees were collected by parents or transported home by a YPC member.
