Jamie Nicholls

About Jamie...
I am a professional snowboarder from Yorkshire. Famous things from Yorkshire include Yorkshire Tea, Yorkshire puddings and the writings of the Brontë sisters, and I like all of these (Well, the first two at least). I represented Team GB in Sochi's, Winter Olympics 2014 and came 6th in the final. I also became the first British male to win a snowboard world cup in 2016.

How Jamie got into snowsports...
I grew up near a dry slope and had my first taste of snowboarding at the age of 7. By age 9, I could already do front flips and backside 900s. A few years later an indoor snow centre opened near Leeds and the rail set ups provided the other half of my youth training. Yorkshire unleashed me on the rest of the World back in 2009. Since then I have travelled the globe shredding big air, slopestyle and rail contests, and I moved to Hemel Hempstead to be near The Snow Centre for summer training.

Jamie’s time at The Snow Centre...
I love coming to The Snow Centre as the atmosphere is amazing, the people are great and you will always have fun no matter what. Great place to be!

Come & snowboard with Jamie...
I love summer Freestyle nights at The Snow Centre the best, all the rails and jumps are out and everyone comes to ride freestyle. All my friends are there, and it’s just so much fun. It’s also great to see how much new talent there is around too!

Jamie’s advice...
My top tip is just too always have fun enjoy the time on snow with your friends and just try to progress in the safest possible way!

The word from the slopes

  • “Easy access from M1. Plenty of parking, simple registration, and quick service to collect skis, boots etc. Both lifts serving the main slopes worked faultlessly and although the session was quite busy I felt the slopes were quite free of other skiers & classes. I particularly liked the snow conditions and at the end enjoyed the amazing cafè overlooking the slopes. Reasonably priced menu. All told an excellent start to our skiing this year.”

  • “Very friendly staff. Good, clean facilities and very good prices on lessons & lift passes.”

  • “Very helpful staff would recommend to anyone trying to learn snow sports very down to earth people.”

  • “Great place, nothing negative to add. You can rent all of the equipment down to socks. Any kind of lessons available. Parking, gear store, cafe on site”

  • “Great lessons with experienced instructors who put kids and parents at their ease. The lessons were full as it was half term, but each child still didn’t have to wait too long between turns on the slope. It was easy to get and return equipment and the food in the restaurant was great and came promptly.”
