Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Private Lesson Snow Centre Hemel Hempstead Pls?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi All,
Some years back I found a great guy that gave my son 1:1 snowboarding lessons at The Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead. We found him so much better than the in-house instructors that were a bit 'cattle-market'. Unfortunately I've lost his details. I'm now looking for a couple of 1:1 SKI lessons for my adult daughter before she hits the slopes in March.. Can anyone help/ advise please?

If intermediate level or above then use Ski Focus or Ski Definition.

Oooh, I always thought private instruction wasn't allowed.

I'll keep my eyes on this!

@NickYoung, it is allowed. The instructor needs to be Level 3 or above, and has to have permission from the centre/has to pay a yearly fee to teach.

That's my understanding of it.

I think there used to be a bit of a discount for SHs and the owner is a SH too? @rob@rar, or something?

Save yourself the hassle and just get some privates in the resort. Better value as well all things considered.

Agree with your comment there Ster.. it's just it's been very many years since my daughter touched the snow on skis, she's taking the trip with another family and a couple of hours of refresher would boost her confidence enabling her to enjoy from the off Very Happy Plus she's been learning (weekly) on the dry slope which is quite a different experience to the (almost) real thing. Or so they say.. I can not (sadly!) ski Crying or Very sad

@Latlum, there has been years between some of my trips and it all comes back pretty quickly. And if shes been learning on a dry slope I suspect she’s been learning excellent technique and will find real snow easy.

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

@Latlum, try contacting Dan or Pete Gillespie. Pete runs the ski school there, not sure if he teaches private lessons, and Dan his son, might well do private lessons, assuming he's not out in Verbier this winter.

So true. Dry slope skiing is really hard - good for her for doing it. But yes, a private lesson in resort would be a great introduction to the holiday. If that could be first thing, it would give her an immediate focus for her first day, which can be a bit intimidating, especially if the weather is dodgy.
