5 Top Christmas Gift Ideas for Skiers & Snowboarders

11 November 2017

It is the season to be jolly, but no doubt all winter loving skiers and snowboarders will be feeling cheery anyway; since the snow will already be falling on their favourite mountain tops! With the right Christmas gift for the skier or snowboarder in your life, you could make this the best Christmas yet. Take a look at our top 5 Christmas gift ideas for the 2017 festive season.

The Go Pro Hero 6 Black

Every skier and snowboarder likes to watch their piste, powder or park runs back, but unfortunately there’s not always a ‘snappy happy chappy' around to film every bit of action on the snow!

The Go Pro Hero 6 Black solves all these problems! You can film yourself with the selfie stick or even your point of view with various different mounts, and this model comes with Go Pro's Quick Stories. In the words of the makers, this means you can, "get the shot, then kick back as your footage moves to the GoPro app and transforms into an awesome video—automatically."

In other words, you can be sure to capture some good quality action shots to upload immediately to your social media pages, as long as you’re roughly pointing the camera in the right direction. A great xmas gift for any skier or snowboarder!

The Snow Centre’s Gift Experience

Now you can actually give a skier or snowboarder what they enjoy the most, time on the snow! Whether, it’s a Gift Voucher to spend on a skiing or snowboarding session of their choosing or a Gift Experience chosen by you, nothing says Merry Christmas to a Snowsports lover like time on their skis or snowboard at The Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead.

Gift Vouchers and Gift Experiences are available for use on Adult and Junior Sessions, and you can choose a voucher denomination or experience to suit your budget. Find out more here!
