When was your first Snowsports experience and where? I first learnt to snowboard at The Snow Centre just a few years ago in 2014! 

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? I love teaching here because for me it is still so familiar when I first learnt to snowboard for the first time at The Snow Centre, so to be able to teach and introduce my passion to new people at the same place where I learnt is the best!

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… Don’t take learning to ski or snowboard too seriously, enjoy every minute and the progression will come! 

Best Snowsports memory? Best snowboarding memory for me so far was my Level 2 BASI course in Hintertux. Spending everyday on my board with like minded people and such an inspiring trainer who pushed us all out of our comfort zones, to dinners at the local pizzeria and chilling out by waterfalls at the end of the course, it was by far the best few weeks and is going to be hard to top! 

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.”
