When was your first Snowsports experience and where? Trying to ski in home made waterproofs and jeans in Italy on a university trip to Italy then promptly fainting  through exhaustion. Not to be recommended!

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? Having the privilege of being part of a wonderful team, sharing my love of Snowsports and ensuring that I make my lessons inclusive to everyone, old, young, those with disabilities, thus sharing that pleasure in their success and achievement.

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… It’s inclusive! Absolutely anyone can achieve success in snowsports but always have lessons to ensure that you do! ( I learned that from experience!!)

Funniest Snowsports memory? When I fell coming off a lift in Val D’ Isère and my friend on the chair behind, in trying to avoid me, skied into the pisteur, who was paying absolutely no attention reading his paper in the little hut at the top of of slope and was  unexpectedly knocked off his stool. We were all incredibly amused, the pisteur was not! We did learn some new  unrepeatable French vocabulary!

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.”
