Here are the Hemel Hempstead Snow Centre park plans for this Thursday and Friday. If you want to shred, may be best to book as last week was completely full on both Thursday and Friday. We blame the Olympics. On that subject, we hear that Jamie Nicholls may be back on Thursday for the second week in a row.

More importantly, this is the last Friday of January/February, so we fully expect the full Friday session to be back on March 7th. Apparently more information is on its way, so watch this space.

It has also been an outlet for much of the UK's rising talent.

Ignite Junior Snowboard Academy offers young snowboarders, ages 7 -16 a coaching style club where they are given the chance to progress from Level 6 Snowboarding to advanced freeride and freestyle. Many youngsters will develop their passion for Snowsports and have the rare opportunity to prepare for competitions during these 2 hour sessions on Saturday mornings.

With guidance from Jamie Nicholls who started snowboarding when he was just seven years old and by the age of nine could already complete front flips and backside 900s, The Snow Centre hope to inspire the next generation of UK talent to follow in his tracks.

Following his selection to represent Team GB in Sochi, Winter Olympics, Jamie reflected "I am delighted to be an ambassador for The Snow Centre and really look forward to helping out where I can. I want to push the Ignite Junior Snowboard Club as I think this is key to bringing up new talent and hopefully one day seeing some of them represent our county in the Olympics too. I'm so looking forward to trying out new freestyle parks at the centre this summer and making it the best park to ride in the UK. "

New Hemel Freestyle Manager wants your thoughts
Posted Thursday 2nd January 2014, 11:54 am by Dunx
Jay Streater was recently appointed the new Freestyle Manager at The Snow Centre Hemel Hempstead. He's now seeking your input to make improvements to Hemel's freestyle:

We have a great opportunity to make some substantial positive changes to the way freestyle is managed and developed at the Snow Centre with my new appointment to the team. Although freestyle has to balance the needs of the snow management team and the core business goals of the centre, there are still a number of avenues that we can go down to improve riders overall experience.

Prior to any changes taking place I would like to gauge your thoughts on what you would like to see from your freestyle experience at the centre. I'm not looking for a debate over the recent changes to the freestyle Fridays that are in place until March, as there is no room for change with this policy. I would like to focus towards what we can implement around the current setup and the increase in park size from March.


Have your say here.

He brings a wealth of experience to the role having worked with Burton Snowboards in the US before settling in the UK and Europe developing products and services running his own successful business for over 5 years.

Ian Brown, Managing Director at The Snow Centre said “ I am delighted to be able to recruit Jay as he shares our vision and commitment to progressing our freestyle offerings here along with some fresh perspectives. On the back of a very successful year we continue to review and develop our business and Jay will be contributing to this”

Jay said “It’s a great feeling to be so closely involved with a slope that has played such an important role in generating my interest in both snowboarding and freestyle. Being a dedicated Freestyle Manager will give me the time and resources to draw the best out of the slope and the team to deliver the most progressive snow parks and leading coaching products available in the UK. It’s going to be a great 2014.


Jay ticks all the boxes for Hemel
