Meet our instructors

Julie Smith

What skill do you teach? Alpine skiing

What qualification do you have? IASI Level 1 

What was your first Snowsports experience and where? My first time skiing was at a dry ski slope on a school trip, in Essex. I then had the opportunity to learn in France a few years later. 

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? I really enjoy seeing people progress and making changes in their skiing. I especially like teaching nervous clients and giving them confidence to carry on with their learning. 

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… “There’s no rush” enjoy the mountain environment, sometimes it gets over looked.  

Best Snowsports memory? Usually at après-ski so no comment! 

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.”
