What skill do you teach? Snowboard Instructor

What qualification do you have? BASI Level 2 & UKCP Freestyle Level 1

What was your first Snowsports experience and where? My first experience was at the Snow Centre with Ollie Paxman. I did all five snowboard levels in a row and loved it.

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? The best thing about being an instructor is the free riding! Just kidding, I love how social it is. I get to know so many different kinds of people whilst doing the thing I love most. It's cool seeing the people you've taught come back to another lesson!

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… Definitely practice as much as possible; there's always new stuff to learn, even the top pros have a ton of tricks that they've never tried before!

Funniest Snowsports memory? I think one of my funniest experiences was in Mayrhofen with a couple mates. The Sky Gods blessed us with 150cm of pow and we went off piste together. Towards the bottom of one of the runs we all got stuck in a tree well and it took us 20 minutes to get out and wade 10 metres to somewhere we could get our boards back on! Don't ride pow on your own!

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.”
