One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… Skiing and snowboarding is an extreme sport so Learn properly through a UK or International Snow School! 

Best Snowsports memory? My best Snowsports experience would be around midday snowboarding in Ruka, Finland. At 2pm the sun starts to fall below the horizon and you get this lovely red glow across the mountain as you're snowboarding down! I would highly recommend this resort to a skier or snowboarder of any level! 

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.”
