Christmas 2019

Christmas celebrations on & off the snow

Due to the current situation we are yet to release details for Christmas 2021 at The Snow Centre. Find out about our Summer 2021 Activities here 

Below is our 2019 Christmas offering. 

It’s that time of year when you meet up with friends and family, attend the much-awaited office party or take the little ones to visit Father Christmas! And what better place to celebrate than in a snowy Winter environment, just outside of London?

At The Snow Centre we offer a range of options to make your festive season go with a bang, from a 2 or 3 course Christmas dinner with friends, some snowy fun activities with your friends or join us for one of our party nights. The choice is yours!

Santa's Grotto at the Snow Centre - 2019

Santa has found the perfect place to hang out in the lead up to Christmas - The Snow Centre of course! When taking time out to visit all the boys and girls in the lead up to Christmas, Santa Claus loves his home from home in freezing temperatures at The Snow Centre Hemel Hempstead.

Just £15 per child including a gift from Santa.

Adults go free - Maximum of 2 adults per child.

The Grotto is open 7th - 24th December - book early to avoid disappointment!

Open at weekends 9am - 6pm. Midweek sessions are available on request for large groups.

For safety reasons, children who need to be carried are not permitted to visit Santa’s Grotto. All visitors, adults and juniors will be required to wear The Snow Centre’s snow boots and a helmet. The grotto experience will last approximately 15 minutes, depending on the child’s age and interest.

A snowy visit wouldn’t be complete without a ride on the Ringo Slide! Great fun for 4 year olds up to grandparents.

Ride the Ringo Slide for 30 minutes of fun. Available weekends and school holidays throughout December.

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.”
