When was your first Snowsports experience and where? I had my first ski lesson at Hillingdon dry ski slope many moons ago, loved it and got hooked straight away

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? The ski centre is the next best place to being in the mountains, with a really great team who love snowsports and want to share their enthusiasm.

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… You will never regret the time you spend on snow, go as often as you can.

Best Snowsports memory... So many to choose from, but possibly skiing from the top of Whistler mountain to the bottom in one go with a local guide at a zillion miles an hour!

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.”
