Skier Dave gets the Chill Factor
A local ski star is among the first people in the country to try out a new indoor winter sports arena in Manchester.
Dave Ryding, 20, of Bretherton, and his mates from the Great British Snow Sport Team have given the Chill Factor-e facility, near the Trafford Centre, a big thumbs up.
Dave, pictured, whose sister Jo is also a member of the team, said: "It's a really great facility.
"There are one or two other centres but I wouldn't say that these are as good as the one in Manchester."
The snow at Chill Factor-e is made from compressed air and water, blasted into a chilled atmosphere to form snowflakes.
