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

  • “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.”
