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.”

  • “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.”
