Junior Snowboard Lessons

The Snow Centre re-opened on Friday 7th August!  

We're excited to be able to offer a range of Lift Passes, Lessons and family fun this summer. See our range of Summer 2020 Activities here. 

Below shows the range of lessons we offered before our closure. We hope to be able to offer these again in the near future. 

Snowboard, boots and helmet are included in all our Lessons and you don't need to purchase a Lift Pass when you book a Lesson, it’s already included in the price.

Select your current ability from the Levels below to find the lesson that’s right for you.

If you are interested in a Private Lesson for your Junior, you can now book them ONLINE, or alternatively call 01442 241321 for more information

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.”
