Although we arrived 90 minutes before our lesson, delays in the food hall (45 minute wait for a burger) meant that I had indigestion on the slope. Also there was no one in the clothing hire which added to delays. The boots I got were really worn out and very sloppy on my feet, reducing my control. The usual chaos... More

Having been discouraged from skiing in the French Alps by ESF, I was reluctant to try skiing again. However in 4 weeks I have gone from Level 1 to pass Level 5 and now moving on to skills development. The instructors are fantastic, from providing encouragement to technique they really are second to none. For a nervous skier like me... More

My five years old son had his first skiing lesson last Sunday and he absolutely loved it! Thanks instructor Cedric for making his first lesson memorable. Will definitely book more lessons with Cedric!

My boyfriend and I have booked a snowboarding holiday for next year, so we thought we better get a few lessons in. Both complete beginners, we weren't even sure how to strap the board to our feet before today! We went on the level one course for two hours. I was a bit nervous we wouldn't get much slope time,...

Had my first lesson snowboarding today with my partner and it was awesome!! Our instructor Alison was very relaxed and very helpful! Defiantly would suggest this to friends and family. Having the lesson first was defiantly a good call! Can't wait to go back!

I did a level one lesson at Milton Keynes and felt less confident and deflated afterwards so I thought I'd give the Snow Centre a go. I'm so glad that I did! I was lucky enough to only have two people in the group but even if it was a bigger group I still think it would have been brilliant.... More

It is amazing to ski on snow at any time of the year. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a wonderful feeling of community as everyone shares their passion for snowsports. I am a ski instructor and I would highly recommend learning to ski at Hemel so you can make the most of your ski holidays abroad and... More

I learnt to snowboard recently at the snow centre with a trip to Austria planned for Christmas. I didn't know what to expect in terms of coaching but immediately felt at ease, and the quality of coaching is top. The lessons I had were 1-6, with 6 being skills and development. Booking a 2 hour group lesson in the week... More
