What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? Teaching so many different people from 3 year olds to 80 year olds, helping them overcome their fears and seeing their enjoyment.

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… Don’t worry about what you look like you don’t have to ski or snowboard like an instructor, as long as you get down the slope safely with as smile on your face your winning.

Funniest Snowsports memory? Skiing in Italy after teaching for the day, saw a small mound of snow to jump off, unfortunately it was soft heavy snow, my skis stopped but I didn’t, I came out of my skis and went head first in to the snow, rolled up on to my head and did a flip landing back on my feet without my skis running down the hill, needless to say the rest of the instructors I was skiing with were in hysterics…

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.”
