When was your first Snowsports experience and where? Seeing a picture of my mother skiing circa 1935 in Switzerland, following that learning to ski at the Uxbridge dry slope in the 1970’s

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? Meeting great people and having the opportunity to help them enjoy their skiing journey

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… When you are not sure what to do, just think push on the left ski, then push on the right ski, abbreviated to push left, push right! Unless it's icy...

Funniest Snowsports memory?  Skiing with my daughter, when skiing if anything is miscalculated or she hits a bump  ... a loud mice like squeal is sounded.

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.”
