So you know you want to go skiing or snowboarding in Scotland. Now the big question is, which ticket type is right for you?
Ski or board where the weather and conditions are best!
The great value 2016/17 Ski-Scotland All Areas Season Ticket is available to buy once again, but only until 30 November and tickets are in limited supply, so get your skates (skis!) on and get one while you can.
The beauty of the All Areas Season Ticket is that it can be used at all five Scottish mountain resorts. That means you can check weather and snow conditions beforehand, then choose the resort where these are best. The other great thing is there's no queuing to get your daily lift pass, just show your All Areas Season Ticket to the lifties and hit the slopes.
The 2016/17 All Areas Season Ticket for new customers costs £535 for adults and £300 for children (5 - 17 years of age at 1/12/16). For customers who held a 15/16 Ticket the costs are £480 for adults and £260 for children. Tickets are available to purchase either online via PayPal or by post.
Visit the All Areas Season Ticket page. Select the ticket type you require and add the name to appear on the Ticket, then add to cart and follow PayPal instructions from View Cart to purchase. Remember you need to send a head and shoulders photo (include your name) to firstname.lastname@example.org as this is added to your pass. If you've had a pass before there's no need to send an image, unless you want to change it!

Day, multiple day and other passes…
Although uplift passes available vary from resort to resort, alongside full day passes, all ski centres offer limited area and half-day passes, which are ideal for beginners, families, those that are short of time, and those who just want to refresh their snowsports memories. Some centres also offer mid-week passes, which are a great value option if you're able to take advantage. Slopes are generally quieter mid-week, so it's a great time to go if you can.
If you're on a short snowsports break and looking for a longer time on the slopes, there are also passes for you, including weekend and multi-day passes and some resorts offer their own specific season tickets. Resorts also offer reduced price passes for senior citizens and students.
You can view pass options and prices available at the five individual resorts via the links below:
At Snow Factor, the indoor fresh snow centre in Braehead, you can select how many hours you wish to ski.
