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

  • “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.”
