Always have an absolutely awesome night freestyle skiing at The Snow Centre! If its freestyle tips you want, keep an eye out Simon Stephens bombing it down the slope in a blue jacket; a great coach who works tirelessly to help you nail the next trick. Last week he helped me break down my 360 attempts and isolated the issue... More

Due to the decline in dry ski slopes we travelled to Hemel and to our amazement we found a mini Switzerland. Perfect conditions and an authentic piste. If a little short however an hour is just the right amount of time to fire up your thirst for the real thing!

We are due to go skiing and are complete novices so booked onto a level 1 beginners 2hr group lesson at the Snow Centre. From booking to checking in and collecting our ski equipment all the staff that we dealt with were very friendly, helpful and professional. Our lesson was taken by Neil and he immediately made us feel welcome,... More

I took my family for a private lesson before our skiing holiday. We learnt a lot and had a great time. Our instructor Neil Presence was great. Would definitely recommend.

I went to Hemel Snow to learn how to snowboard ahead of a holiday. After a short chat with the sales lady it, I booked in for a private lesson with Sarah I got so much more out of the lesson than I expected. Sarah is really passionate about snowboarding and good technique. Conquering the basics early on helped me... More

I went to the 5hr Adult Beginning Ski Course on my own and had a very good time. My instructor was Jamie and got us up and skiing straight away. Lunch and coffee was included which was lovely. We did not stop skiing for the entire 5hrs and some of the group managed to get up into the main slope.... More

Really liked the food here. Burgers are great so worth a treat if you are up here with the family. Good views of the ski slope as well.

The whole family been having a number of lessons there recently and overall its been really good. The coaches are nice and helpful and the whole environment makes you feel like you are on holiday. Being real snow rather than a dry ski slope is much better and its not too cold. All equipment (helmet/ski/snowboard/boots) are included in the price... More

I am a frequent visitor to The Snow Centre. It is the ideal place to get your ski legs back or to take that first adventure on real snow. The conditions are always perfect, the staff are very friendly and efficient. Also for equipment and ski servicing it is convenient to have Snow and Rock on site. I thoroughly recommend... More
