Olympic skier Ed Drake will be hosting a day of ski and board challenges at The Snow Centre in Hemel
If you’re looking for something a bit different to do this Bank Holiday weekend, how does taking to the snow with a real-life Olympic skier sound?
Top British Alpine skier Ed Drake is hosting a day of ski and board cross fun at The Snow Centre in Hemel on Monday, and skiers and boarders of all levels are welcome.
The Snow Centre’s real snow slope will be transformed with competitive starting gates, artificial bumps, turns and wu-tangs in a one-day-only challenge, and you can race an Olympian or enjoy the thrill of speeding over the rollers with friends and family.
“This is such a great opportunity to enjoy some competitive fun on the snow, whether you’re a complete novice or a budding pro,” says Ed, who hopes to compete in the ski cross event at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.
“The open session will let you experience your snow sport in a different way, and it’s a chance to challenge your friends or family to see who’s the fastest. The coaching session will be excellent too – I’ll be keeping an eye out for any future Olympians!”
