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

  • “Love it here. Great slope and the staff are really friendly. Also love the Alpine bar and viewing area. So pleased to have it back.”

  • “My family's first visit. It was a great day out, enjoyed a coffee and some cake before the lesson. Then enjoyed a lesson with a very calm and reassuring instructor. Would recommend a visit, it was good fun.”

  • “Our first visit to try out new boots before our holiday. A great way to get your "ski legs" back. Snow excellent, staff extremely helpful, facilities spotless and a nice coffee to end the session.”

  • “Overall my experience at the snow centre was INCREDIBLE. Everyone was so welcome and supportive as well it was easy to understand the prep before hand. As a beginner ive never got the hang of the basics so quickly, so a massive thank you to all instructors.”
