Active Students Extra is a bit different to the normal Active Students programme. We’re offering you the opportunity sign up and commit to learn a new sport or skill over 6 weeks. The sports on offer are not your average , every-day activities, hence why we’re asking you to contribute towards the costs - these prices are still really good value for money and heavily subsidised.
Do you want to learn how to ski? Active Students Xtra is running a 6 week Learn to Ski course at the Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead (about 20 minutes from Hatfield) which has real snow! The aim of this course is to teach you the fundamentals of skiing and how to use the ski lifts.
What does the course include?
- 1 hour of tuition each week for 6 weeks with qualified instructors
- All skiing equipment is included. You just need to wear warm clothes, tracksuit bottoms are fine but waterproof clothes are great (no jeans!) and don’t forget to bring gloves!
- Ski clothing is available to hire from the Snow Centre
- Helmets are compulsory and are provided by the Snow Centre.
Please note: these sessions are for beginners only. This course is not suitable for those who have skied before.
When booking your place, you will be given two options for transport; either select a ticket that includes or excludes transport. The options are below:
