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.

Hemel parks for this week
Posted Thursday 29th May 2014, 12:31 pm by Dunx
The Piste Basher was fixed on Saturday in time for them to destroy the SCUK Spring Bash park. We were amazed by how well the slope held together all day Saturday and Hemel's park crew did a great job in difficult circumstances. It was another awesome event brought to you from SCUK and TCS. We'll have the photos soon.

Here are the park plans for this week. We're particularly liking Zone 2 on Friday night, which looks like a great line for those who took their first freestyle steps at the weekend with Maverix and/or Definition.





The Friday before our event saw the Jamie Nicholls' Signature Park. Here's a little video from Max Presky.

New Parkstarz at Hemel
Posted Tuesday 20th May 2014, 2:09 pm by Dunx
The Snow Centre (TSC), Hemel Hempstead launches “ParkStarz” at the Jamie Nicholls Signature Freestyle Park on Friday 23rd May from 6.30-8.30pm.


Aimee Fuller and "Parkstarz"
Parkstarz, the new junior Freestyle/Slopestyle Coaching Clinics have been developed to introduce children age 7 to 16 years to freestyle. TSC’s expert freestyle instructors will teach young skiers and snowboarders how to best hit a range of features, including rails, boxes and kickers in their specially designed freestyle park.

On launch night, juniors will learn, practise and play in the Jamie Nicholls’ Signature Park developing and improving their freestyle skills until they are indeed stars of the park - “ParkStarz”.

Available every Friday 6.30pm – 8.30pm the juniors will get to try the full range of features, beginner – advanced as ParkStarz is on the Main Slope. £39 (£27.30 members.)

The Snow Centre’s Ambassador Aimee Fuller also loves the idea of getting behind ParkStarz to encourage more children to get involved in freestyle.

Aimee says, “One of the best days at The Snow Centre was straight after the Olympics when we flew back from Sochi and headed straight there for a session; it was so memorable as there were so many people riding and just stoked on snowboarding, and that was the coolest thing to see, just the place packed with tons of new faces of people trying the sport we love!”

Stay on the slopes after ParkStarz


For just £10 extra (£7 members) participants can stay on the slope for another two hours from 8.30pm – 10.30pm to practice the skills they have learnt and enjoy a full night of Freestyle.
