Graham Guy

What skill do you teach? Skiing

What qualification do you have? BASI Level 1 Alpine Skiing

When was your first Snowsports experience and where? On a school trip when I was 12, in Scotland at what later became the Lecht Centre.  Absolutely LOVED it – and still do!!  Check out the skis on the walls in the Lodge and you will get an idea of the equipment I started on.  I spent the rest of my school life working evenings and weekend to fund ski trips.

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? Being able to share my passion for skiing with guests.  What could possibly be better than helping guest to experience the thrill of skiing, and come to love it too?  And to do it in an environment where all the teams (on and off the snow) do everything they can to support is just fantastic.

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… Relax and enjoy it – and if you are prepared to venture a little outside your comfort zone it will only increase the fun, and sense of achievement – guaranteed!  You can do it.

Best/funniest Snowsports memory? So many years, and so many incredible memories. But my best memory is without doubt helping my 3 year old grand-daughter take her first runs on skis in Seefeld (Austria) in March 2018.  She LOVED it, and the pleasure it gave to me can’t be translated into words.

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.”

  • “Incredible welcome and help from the staff! First trip back since before lockdown and it was well worthwhile. Lovely welcome and talk through the new set up. Then my son had an issue with his own kit and the guys couldn’t have been more helpful - very kind and very knowledgeable. The snow as good as ever and the cafe a good finish to a great time. Thank you all!”

  • “The Hemel ski centre has a great atmosphere, the instructors are friendly and helpful, it’s just an all round really well run place”

  • “Had a great time at the snow centre, went once before lockdown and was good to be back. I had a one on one lesson which was good but went too quickly. I’ll try to book two lessons on the same day so I can keep up with progress. It was all well managed and seemed to have good Covid measures in place.”
