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

  • “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.”

  • “My family's first visit. It was a great day out, enjoyed a coffee and some cake before the lesson. Then enjoyed a lesson with a very calm and reassuring instructor. Would recommend a visit, it was good fun.”

  • “Our first visit to try out new boots before our holiday. A great way to get your "ski legs" back. Snow excellent, staff extremely helpful, facilities spotless and a nice coffee to end the session.”

  • “Overall my experience at the snow centre was INCREDIBLE. Everyone was so welcome and supportive as well it was easy to understand the prep before hand. As a beginner ive never got the hang of the basics so quickly, so a massive thank you to all instructors.”
