Meet our instructors

Ross Griffiths

What skill do you teach? Snowboard and flatland Freestyle

What qualification do you have? BASI Level 2 and UKCP Coaching Level 1

When was your first Snowsports experience and where? I learned to snowboard when Hemel was a dry slope

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? We have a lot of clients so I get to develop good relationships with people that come often, as well as meeting and inspiring new people.

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in snowsports... Learning and improving is good for you, as it makes it easier and safer for you to have fun... but mostly have fun.

Best Snowsports memory? Charging down black runs on the last day of my Level 2. Probably one of the most physically and mentally demanding challenges I've had, but that day I forgot all about it and just rode my board, and have never had so much fun.

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.”
