Linda Forbes

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

  • “Easy access from M1. Plenty of parking, simple registration, and quick service to collect skis, boots etc. Both lifts serving the main slopes worked faultlessly and although the session was quite busy I felt the slopes were quite free of other skiers & classes. I particularly liked the snow conditions and at the end enjoyed the amazing cafè overlooking the slopes. Reasonably priced menu. All told an excellent start to our skiing this year.”

  • “Very friendly staff. Good, clean facilities and very good prices on lessons & lift passes.”

  • “Very helpful staff would recommend to anyone trying to learn snow sports very down to earth people.”

  • “Great place, nothing negative to add. You can rent all of the equipment down to socks. Any kind of lessons available. Parking, gear store, cafe on site”

  • “Great lessons with experienced instructors who put kids and parents at their ease. The lessons were full as it was half term, but each child still didn’t have to wait too long between turns on the slope. It was easy to get and return equipment and the food in the restaurant was great and came promptly.”
