What to wear

The temperature is between -2°C and -6°C on the slope, so you’re best to dress for these conditions!

Following the Coronavirus Pandemic, information on this page may be incorrect. Please contact a member of The Snow Centre team if you would like further information by e-mail or you can call us on 01442 241321.

We recommend wearing warm waterproof jacket and trousers, waterproof gloves and thick socks, jeans are not recommended. If you don’t have any of these items you can hire a jacket and trousers from us for £8 and purchase gloves for £10.00 and socks for £5.

As there’s no wind on the slope, you won’t need thermals, just a long sleeved t-shirt or jumper under your jacket will normally be adequate. We don’t recommend you wear trousers under our waterproof trousers. Changing cubicles can be found in the rental area.

There’s no need for sunglasses or goggles - the slope’s artificially lit!

All our activities include the equipment you need: skis, snowboards, boots, ski poles, sledges and helmets. Helmets are compulsory for anyone taking part in an on-snow activity. You can bring your own or borrow one of ours, these are available in various sizes and can be collected from the Rental Area.

We offer top of the range ski and snowboard equipment from leading Snowsports brand HEAD - available to you at no extra cost. Several Gold medallists in the last winter Olympics used HEAD ski equipment, plus our partnership with HEAD means we’re giving you access to some of the newest equipment on the market.

The word from the slopes

  • “Love it here. Great slope and the staff are really friendly. Also love the Alpine bar and viewing area. So pleased to have it back.”

  • “Incredible welcome and help from the staff! First trip back since before lockdown and it was well worthwhile. Lovely welcome and talk through the new set up. Then my son had an issue with his own kit and the guys couldn’t have been more helpful - very kind and very knowledgeable. The snow as good as ever and the cafe a good finish to a great time. Thank you all!”

  • “The Hemel ski centre has a great atmosphere, the instructors are friendly and helpful, it’s just an all round really well run place”

  • “Had a great time at the snow centre, went once before lockdown and was good to be back. I had a one on one lesson which was good but went too quickly. I’ll try to book two lessons on the same day so I can keep up with progress. It was all well managed and seemed to have good Covid measures in place.”
