The Chill is a small glacial island off the coast of Skyrim. It is located north of Winterhold in the ice fields of the Sea of Ghosts.[2][1]:799 The island is home to an ice cave that serves as Winterhold's jail,[1] where prisoners are often left to die. This island prison is guarded only by Frost Atronachs.[3] The guards in Winterhold will often tell recently captured criminals to "enjoy the Chill".[4]

The island is quite mineral rich, with ore deposits of corundum, gold, iron, and silver all being present. The island and surrounding ice floes are home to wildlife such as horkers, ice wolves, snowy sabre cats, and snow bears.[3]
