When was your first Snowsports experience and where? My first experience of Skiing was at age 14 on Cross Country Skis (skinny skis!) in the wilderness of Vermont, USA. It was on family holiday and my brother and I were very much following in our parents footsteps or rather ski tracks! It was a beautiful crisp sunny day and my parents were dressed in their retro/now very cool, Nordic ski attire! That experience has stuck with me ever since! It wasn’t until I was much older that I learnt to downhill ski.

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? Diversity! Everyday is different and you are always learning something new!

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… You are never too old and to take your time, don’t rush the process. Lastly, enjoy the process after all its supposed to be fun!

Best Snowsports memory... Skiing in Whistler, Canada, with my husband and some friends on a bluebird day down this mountain panoramic run with not a person around! Heaven! 
 

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.”
