Kevin Spicer

What skill do you teach? Skiing

What qualification do you have? BASI Alpine Level 2

When was your first Snowsports experience and where? I first tried skiing in July 2014, at the age of 41, when I swapped an unwanted tank driving experience day for ski lessons on a rolling slope. I was hooked from the first turn.  I now have a house full of ski kit and a wife who is thankful there isn't a tank on the drive.

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? The people! A great supportive team.

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… Keep smiling, it really does help.  Celebrate your successes and laugh off your failures.

Best Snowsports memory? The first time I tried to learn to ski moguls on a mountain.  I was very proud that I was the only skier in my group to make it from top to bottom of the run without bottling out and returning to the groomed run alongside.  I was less proud that I had descended a good chunk of it on my face rather than my skis. Oops!

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.”
