One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsport... Enjoy every amazing moment and remember - it's FUN!

Best/Funniest Snowsports memory? 
Best - Christmas family holidays in the mountains is as good as it gets. 
Funniest - When I lead groups in the alps I always issue a t- shirt for the funniest and most memorable moment at dinner on the last day. I have issued far too many to recount them all, cost a small fortune in t shirts!

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.”
