Good snow, good staff, good facilitise but best to avoid weekends!

Conveniently Hemel Snow Centre is only 15-20 mins from my home, so considering it's way closer than any real mountain, it is definitely better than nothing! The snow is decent... read more

My husband and I found a deal on groupon and, having always been intrigued by snowboard, we decided to give a level 1 lesson a try. At reception you get very clear instructions on where to go, how to collect your equipment (we were given snowboard, boots and helmets) and where to wait for the instructor. Our group of 6... More

I recebtly bought a taster session for me and a couple of friends for snowboarding. Our instructor Daniel Alexander was incredibly friendly and made the firat time experience very relaxed and enjoyable, despite all our different learning curves. Facilities around the centre are excellent and every staff interaction I've had, has been incredibly positive. Being new to snowboarding I wasn't... More

The snow is decent, the staff are usually nice/ polite/ helpful and the price is ok. August was pretty decent as I purchased a monthly pass for £42 (membership price), shame the September isn't...

I've always wanted to give snowboarding a go and see if it would be for me. As I found out, this is just the right place to do so. Started level 1 with Dwayne McConnel a few weeks ago and have just completed level 4 with Allison Cronnelly so making a steady progress and will definitely be back for more.... More

Had my first snowboarding lesson with Martin. Was a great experience and will definitely be back. It is harder than it looks but great fun all the same. Hopefully next time I will be able to stay upright for more than five minutes.

My snowboard instructor was named Caleb and I would thoroughly recommend him! He was friendly, personable, knowledgeable, and very patient! Overall, it was a fantastic experience and I really improved over the two hour lesson! Thanks Caleb!

Not the longest run for experience skiiers, but you can ski in the summer in England! Took 6 courses ("six pack") with brilliant instructors; had a ball. Its real snow, and whilst I am a competent boarder, I went from novice to carving in those 6 sessions. Can't wait to mix boarding and skiing this Winter n the mountains.

Completed level 4 on Saturday with Martin Hrncar. Found him to be an excellent teacher with a great way of explaining things. Really felt he went the extra mile for our party and would recommend to everyone. Thanks Martin

booked a 12.45 hour session with my son for one to one private tuition. Staff were friendly and helpful on the front desk and the hiring of clothes was a simple and easy. Our instructor Martin Hrncar..he was very friendly and positive and was as keen to get onto the snow as we were. We were soon up the small... More

Having left a big gap between my snowboarding lesson, I have become rusty in making turns and have to repeat level 3. Martin was brilliant in his clarity in instructions and I like his persistent in stick to his way! When he understands that my confidence is a big obstacle in holding me back, he takes extra effort in encouraging... More
