When was your first Snowsports experience and where? I first learnt to snowboard at an indoor centre before I went on holiday with my family in Pila (Italy) in Feb 2004!

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? I enjoy teaching people to learn how to ride and enjoy themselves! I am a deaf and I can communicate both oral and BSL.

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… Keep riding and have fun!

Funniest Snowsports memory? I went on a trip to the mountains with a group of snowboarders. We all went off piste, thick soft snow, and everyone fell down (as well as the instructor)!

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.”
