The Snow Centre Hemel Hempstead Store
The Snow Centre is Britain's newest indoor snowsports destination and is designed to deliver the alpine conditions every skier and snowboarder dreams of.
Our Hemel Hempstead store is located within this superb complex and offers winter sports clothing, equipment and accessories all year round, a 'try before you buy' demo pool, an extensive race department (including children's race skis), full workshop facilities and experienced staff to advise you on all the right kit to hit the slopes with.
Please note: Our Snow+Rock at Hemel Hempstead only does winter sports and not our hiking range. Over the summer we have an extensive range of winter sports clothing and hardware at discounted prices so grab a bargain whilst you can!
We can also cater to all of your cycling needs, as our store also incorporates CycleSurgery - complete with mountain, commuter and road bikes, as well as bicycle workshop services.
The Snow+Rock Group became a retail group after acquiring CycleSurgery in 2007 and Runners Need more recently in 2010.

- Founded in 1992 CycleSurgery grew quickly to become one of London's leading bike shops. Sharing the same philosophy as Snow+Rock, to provide the best quality products, service, and advice, they were acquired by Snow+Rock in 2007 where they were quickly expanded into several Snow+Rock stores (including this one). This growth however hasn't effected the core values of the store and we hope to provide a local shop feel. Visit us now and find out for yourself or log on to www.cyclesurgery.com for more details.
