Could you beat Great Britain’s Olympic ski-crosser Ed Drake? You can have a go at Hemel Hempstead’s Snow Centre.

He will set a time to beat at the start of the centre’s Bank Holiday Monday Ski Cross and Boarder Cross Day.

Then from 10am to 3pm, people will be split into groups of four to try and beat him – and each other – on the same slope. Taking part costs £25 for an hour-long session.

A more serious tournament to win one-to-one tuition from Ed will begin in the afternoon, and costs £20 to enter. More details at
