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

  • “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.”
