What skill do you teach? Skiing

What qualification do you have? BASI Level 1

When was your first Snowsports experience and where? I was on skis from the age of 3 at Hemel when it used to be a dry slope.

What's the best thing about being an instructor at the Snow Centre? Seeing the people you teach progress to the next level is always very rewarding and to be able to teach where I was taught always brings back some good memories!

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports... If it doesn't click straight away, don't give up! It's very rewarding when you stick with it and finally get onto the main slope.

Best Snowsports memory? My best memory is the first time we went away to Norway. Finally skiing in the mountains after practicing on the dry slope was amazing.

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.”
