Even though she’s considered Britain’s number one skier and best medal hope at the 2010 Winter Olympics, Chemmy Alcott still has time to show average skiers a thing or two.
The London native recently visited The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead to hold ski master classes for its customers. She took some time away from training for this year’s World Cup as well as the Olympics to offer tips and advice.
Although she was looking forward to jetting off for glacier ski training in New Zealand and Chile to put the finishing touches to her race preparation, Alcott did enjoy her experience and appreciate the benefits of having a nearby indoor ski facility.
“I am delighted to be at the new Snow Centre, it is fantastic that we now have such a great snowsports facility so close to the capital,” said Alcott. “Hopefully more people will be inspired to pick up the sport and with the quality of training on offer at The Snow Centre, we should be seeing more bright stars coming through the ranks very soon.”
The £23million (USD $37 million) Snow Centre opened in May and is the only indoor snow sports complex in the south of Britain to hold the prestigious Centre of Excellence status, given by the British Association of Snowsport Instructors (BASI), making it one of the most qualified snow schools outside of the Alps.
