Hemel's winter freestyle calendar
Posted Wednesday 26th November 2014, 10:20 am by Dunx
As they did last year, TCS will be offering smaller parks during the winter to preserve the quality of their snow for what is their peak season.


Don't be negative about this like Andy Nudds here. Getting more people in to their winter sports during the peak season is good for everybody in the long run.


From 4th December to the 18th December Thursday's park set-up on half the Main Slope will continue 6pm-10pm, before our 2 week break for Christmas! Throughout the winter season from 8th January Thursday’s half park set-up will keep you progressing your moves on 2 to 3 lines of features.

Friday’s last BIG park night of this winter season is on Friday 28th November 6.30pm-10.30pm.

From Friday 5th December until 3rd April 2015, there will be 2 lines of freestyle features 6pm-10pm every Friday on the Main Slope, except for Friday 26th December and Friday 2nd January when freestyle nights break for Christmas.

Keep an eye out for the 18th and 19th December as some special features are planned.

Full details here.

Here are the park plans for The Snow Centre Hemel Hempstead this week.

Friday will have the premier of Prespective, which is a freeski film we know nothing about, but it's got helicopters in it so probably worth a watch.



Friday is also this winter’s last big park night at The snow Centre until April 2015, so we are encouraging people to come down, land some tricks and make the most of the set-up. More on the changes for the winter at Hemel soon.

The Snow Centre with Snowbility smash Guinness World Record
Posted Thursday 3rd July 2014, 3:36 pm by Dunx
It has been confirmed that the attempt made on 1st May 2014, as part of The Snow Centre’s 5th birthday celebrations on the 160m real snow slope at The Snow Centre, involving more than 250 skiers is a NEW Guinness World Record. - the 'greatest distance on an indoor slope in 12 hours (team).’

The record breaking team was made up of Snowbility’s students alongside others including instructors, The Snow Centre’s members and Paralympian, Anna Turney.


The world record attempt was started by Mike Penning MP, the Minister of State for Disabilities.


A total of 5,608 runs, 714 kilometers or 444.29 miles was achieved smashing the previous record of record of 3,921 runs: The greatest distance ever skied in 12 hours on an indoor ski slope by any team – the equivalent of skiing to Switzerland!

“I am just so proud of everyone involved and most importantly, I am at my happiest to see all my students achieving something that most people only ever dream about. Just think what they can do if we can break down a few more barriers for them,” said Snowbility founder, Richard Fetherston.

"Because of my poor sight, my friends are always better than me at football, rugby and cricket but they can’t ski like I can, and I know that if I keep training with Richard I might be able to ski in the Paralympics one day ." Sonny McAnulty, age 11, Snowbility snow sports student and Guinness World Record holder.
