WHY SKI OR BOARD IN SCOTLAND?
- Skiing and snowboarding in Scotland is good value for money and you don't need a passport, costly travel insurance or foreign currency (unless you're visiting Scotland from overseas).
- Professional instruction and equipment hire is available at all centres - please book in advance.
- There is a wide choice of friendly local accommodation and things to see and do near each mountain centre if you're planning a short break or extended winter holiday.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
- Do your research. Register for snow alerts, follow the Ski-Scotland Facebook page and keep up with the latest snow conditions. Always check the travel and weather reports before travelling.
- Find out more about the various ski passes available, from day to multiple day passes and the Ski-Scotland All Areas Season Ticket (available for a limited time only).
- Book accommodation (if you need it) nearby.
HOW CAN I LEARN TO SKI OR BOARD IN SCOTLAND?
- If it's your first time on skis or a board, then it might be worth taking a lesson at a local artificial ski slope.
- When you're ready for the mountain, choose your snowsport centre. All centres have beginners' slopes with easy uplift.
- Contact the centre and book a beginners package. These include your lift pass, equipment and lessons. At Glenshee, you'll need to book these separately.
- If you're taking a lesson, remember to arrive at the centre at least 1 hour before it's due to start.
