Liam Tynan

About Liam…
I am 15 years old and go to a school in Harpenden called Roundwood Park School. In snowboarding I want to get to the highest level I possibly can and compete in a variety of different competitions which include X Games, Olympics and Dew Tour. Snowboarding is my favourite sport and I am going to carry it out as long as I can. I started when I was 8 years old and have loved it ever since. I ride every week on a Thursday when the park is up at The Snow Centre. As well as snowboarding I do skateboarding and rugby. Also along with riding and competing indoors I train and compete out in the mountains with the GB Team. I was well happy when I received the letter from GB Snowsport inviting me to ride for the GB team, now I train and compete with them.

How Liam got into Snowsports…
I first got into snowboarding when I was 8 years old in La Rossier. I was skiing at the time however I wanted to try something new. So we went to rentals and changed my skis for a snowboard, the deal was that I ski one day snowboard the next but as soon as I had my first go on that snowboard I never went back to skis.

Liam’s time at The Snow Centre…
My time at The Snow Centre so far has been a mad experience and its a good and easy way to go have some fun. The two things I enjoy most about the snow centre is riding with all your mates having a good time. I would recommend to the people who want to try skiing or snowboarding to get yourself down to The Snow Centre. Parks are set up on Thursdays and there are big park Fridays at the end of every month. Yhis is a good way to meet new people and try to improve you skills whilst having fun. I enjoy these nights a lot and so I go every week.

Favourite trick…
My favourite trick to date is a backside double cork 1080

Top tip…
Remember to have fun and push yourself to the limit. Also to make the most of it and improve, when trying to learn a new trick get someone to video it so you can look back at what you did wrong.

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.”
