Did you know skiing and snowboarding is a pretty social activity? The slopes are a place to have fun and progess your skills with old friends, and meet new ones too!
In mountain ski resorts, chalet stays, group ski lessons, chair lift rides, Après sessions and sunny days in the freestyle park are all great opportunities to pick up some new-found snow buddies, but UK slopes offer just as many, if not more social opportunities to meet new friends.
With indoor snow centres and dry slopes providing skiing and snowboarding Lift Passes and Lessons all year round, many UK facilities have become a hub for socialising on and off the snow. Complete beginners, park pros, racers, adults and kids can all find a suitable snowsports community at a UK slope.
The ski and snowboard community are generally a friendly welcoming bunch, and contrary to the ski and snowboard rivalry myths, you’ll find skiers and snowboarders lapping together, seasoned park rats cheering on youngsters, and mums and dads enjoying the same snow fun as their kids. It seems, on the slopes the only thing you need to share is a love for sliding on snow, but there will be some sessions more suited to you than others.
Here’s just a few ways you can get on-board with a social snowsports group or community that’s right for you at The Snow Centre Hemel Hempstead.
