Meet Our Instructors

David Stern

What skill do you teach? Alpine Skiing

What qualification do you have? BASI Level 1 and IASI Level 2

What was your first Snowsports experience and where? Ski trips with my school, when aged 8 or 9, to a tiny village in Austria called Trins - I've never heard of it since!

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre?  Sharing my passion for skiing. If the client/group says they really enjoyed the lesson, and felt they progressed, then I'm happy 

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… Remember that it's supposed to be fun! And be patient - it's not all going to 'work' when you're trying something new (OK, so that was two things, but hey...)

Funniest Snowsports memory? Getting up on stage with a band in Val-d'Isère on my birthday, and singing Oasis "Don't look back in anger". I'm sure I sounded exactly like Noel Gallagher, but there may have been alcohol involved, so I can't be 100% sure...

The word from the slopes

  • “Easy access from M1. Plenty of parking, simple registration, and quick service to collect skis, boots etc. Both lifts serving the main slopes worked faultlessly and although the session was quite busy I felt the slopes were quite free of other skiers & classes. I particularly liked the snow conditions and at the end enjoyed the amazing cafè overlooking the slopes. Reasonably priced menu. All told an excellent start to our skiing this year.”

  • “Very friendly staff. Good, clean facilities and very good prices on lessons & lift passes.”

  • “Very helpful staff would recommend to anyone trying to learn snow sports very down to earth people.”

  • “Great place, nothing negative to add. You can rent all of the equipment down to socks. Any kind of lessons available. Parking, gear store, cafe on site”

  • “Great lessons with experienced instructors who put kids and parents at their ease. The lessons were full as it was half term, but each child still didn’t have to wait too long between turns on the slope. It was easy to get and return equipment and the food in the restaurant was great and came promptly.”
