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

  • “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.”
