A few of us popped in for a quick meal and to allow an older friend to watch the skiing. Access was easy and menu had a fair amount of choice. The place was not busy, food arrived quickly, was hot and good portion sizes. My only criticism was overall cleanliness and tidiness. The floor and tables all needed a... More

A great place for your children to test and develop their skills. The instructors, on the occasions when I've visited, have been excellent, pacing things well and staying attentive and helpful. They are very good indeed at encouraging their pupils to progress and at sharing their successes. The building is well maintained, kept clean and attractive, and is efficiently run.... More

Receptionist booked me into level 2 despite never having been on a snowboard in my life! Groups consisted of 3 students, plus instructor Martin Hrncar. It was obvious I was the beginner, but Martin was fabulous. He gave us all specific direction, how to correct our posture and what especially we should concentrate on to improve. Being a small group... More

I was doing a Basi course last week in Snowboarding and on my course was George Pilling, Hayden Fitch, and William Dalzell who all work at the snow centre and made our course so enjoyable with their knowledge of the sport and centre. They really went out of their way to make us feel so welcome. Thank you guy. Brydie

Had a corporate lesson here and was just great - brilliant instructor... nice friendly staff.... Lovely to have in Hemel Hempstead! If had to be negative I would just say a little pricey for day to day visits..... Thanks for a great day... I will hopefully come again to get my last sign off to be allowed to ski on... More

Had a fanastic first lesson with Martin Hrncar. Came into the centre on tuesday to get some information and the receptions gave so much infomation. She was very patience with all my questions and I ended up buying the lessons right there. Been on a dry slope so this was my first time on snow and it was fanastic. Martin... More
