Greg Patterson

What skill do you teach? Skiing

What qualification do you have? IASI Level 1 Alpine Ski Instructor and working towards a level 2 qualification

What was your first Snowsports experience and where? I started my skiing journey when I was 12 years old, I had lessons at The Snow Centre. It was all in preparation for a family ski holiday.

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? The positive atmosphere as the whole team working with each other to produce a great experience for our clients. Teaching people how to ski is a true honour, I love to see the progression and how people grow in confidence and skill.

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports? Take it in step by step and it is always about learning and having fun.

Funniest Snowsports memory? My older brother asking, after a week of skiing, “have you fallen over yet?” and I replied “No”. At which he pushed me over into deep snow

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.”
