Enemies Frost Atronachs
Location ID WinterholdJail

The Chill is an unmarked cave found due north of the College of Winterhold. It serves as the prison for those who have commited crime inside the Winterhold Hold.


Inside are three adept locked cages guarded by a Frost Atronach. Three Frost Atronachs attack upon exiting the cave and possibly two Horkers. If the Dragonborn is sent to prison in Winterhold, they end up here.

They arrive with all of their gear so it is very easy to break out of if one has lockpicks. If they are of high enough level, they can easily kill the Frost Atronachs guarding the exit and quickly travel away. Inside the two other cages are skeletal remains containing minor loot.




  • In the German version of Skyrim, The Chill is known as "The Cold Warehouse".
