We provide expert Ski and Snowboard Lessons for Adults (17+ years) and juniors (4 -16 years) to help you feel confident and comfortable on our slopes. We’ve created a range of specially designed Group Ski Lessons and Private Ski Lessons that will teach you the core skills for skiing and snowboarding. We will then teach you how to develop your newly found skills and help you refine and perfect your technique.

Our Adult Group Skiing Lessons hold a maximum of 10 people for skiing, and 6 for Adult Group Snowboarding Lessons or 8 on our Snowboarding Day Courses & Levels 5 and above. Junior Skiing Lessons for 4 year olds have a maximum of 5 people,  6 people for ages 5 - 6, 8 people for ages 7 - 10 and 10 people for ages 11 - 16. Junior Group Snowboarding Lessons for ages 7 - 10 hold a maximum of 4 people and 6 for ages 11 – 16, except Levels 5 & above which have a maximum of 8. Our maximum group numbers are in place to ensure everyone gets the help and guidance they need.

If you have already achieved our Main Slope Ready Level  and you're set to hit the slopes, there are a number of Lift Passes and sessions created to suit you. Take a look at our Range of  Lift Passes  or our Level 5 and above Lessons. Please note for safety reasons you may not use our Main Slope on a Lift Pass unless you have already had experience in Snowsports AND have passed our Main Slope Ready Level Lesson OR are able to make controlled turns on the Main Slope, stop and control your speed when required and use the button lift unassisted.

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.”
