Madi Rowlands

About Madi…
I’m a 17-year-old professional freeskier. In 2016, when I was 15 years old, I was fortunate enough to make history, when I became Team GB’s first on snow Winter Youth Olympic Games medallist with a gold in the ladies’ halfpipe event at Lillehammer.

How Madi got into skiing...
My family have always been keen skiers; so as soon as I could walk they put me on a little strap on skis and they haven’t been able to stop me since! After that I followed my brother through the park and everything just carried on from there.

Madi’s time at The Snow Centre...
I love going to the Friday Freestyle Sessions at The Snow centre, as its always a good set up and I love skiing with all my friends too. 

Come & ski with Madi...
You’ll usually find me on the slopes hitting the rail lines and having fun!

Madi’s top tip…
My advice is to just have fun with skiing, as there’s no wrong way to learn and there’s always coaches on hand on Friday nights at The Snow Centre!

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.”
