Burns takes ski lift to top of Chill Factore

Chill Factore, the new indoor ski and leisure facility at Trafford Park has appointed David Burns as chief executive. The private equity-backed group behind the venture spent £31m on the Manchester operation and plans to roll out the concept around Europe. A well-respected leisure industry executive, and a director of Altrincham Football Club, Burns’ CV includes board level positions at Airtours, when it was doing well, and from 2000 to 2002 he was chief executive of the Football League. He most recently was managing director of Travelsphere Group, which he took through a buyout and eventual sale to private equity group Electra. Chill Factore was started by entrepreneurs Peter Moore, David Sterland and Andrew Lockerbie and is backed by Bridges Community Ventures.

Do you reckon he can get a discount on skiing for Alty fans?

Let's hope that Farsley's form continues to go downhill....
