Meet our instructors

Santi Izaguirre

What skill do you teach? Alpine

What qualification do you have? SSE 1 and IEF (Argentinean Ski Instructor State Qualification)

What was your first Snowsports experience and where? A winter holiday with my family at Bariloche Argentina. Back then I was 12 years old and I never stopped skiing since then. I later become an instructor at the age of 26 at Las Leñas ski resort, Argentina.

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? Super friendly atmosphere and good camaraderie in and out of the slope, it is also great that the snow is not affected by external weather conditions😀

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… learning is a never ending process, have fun, don’t be afraid to take a stumble and never ever give up! Just enjoy the ride! 

Funniest Snowsports memory? While giving an adult group lesson to a group of total beginners in the mountain. Although none of the students knew each other, they all had such a great sense of humour that were not afraid to pick on each other on their mistakes and stumbles. They made the whole week of lessons an incredible fun experience impossible to forget.

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.”
