So you know you want to go skiing or snowboarding in Scotland. Now the big question is, which ticket type is right for you?

Short sessions on the slopes...

Although the passes available vary from resort to resort, all ski centres offer limited area and half-day passes which are ideal for beginners, families and those who just want to refresh their snowsports memories.

Make a break of it...

If you're looking for longer on the slopes, then there are also passes for you, including full-day, weekend, mid-week and five-day passes. Some resorts offer reduced prices for senior citizens, students and family tickets.

You can view ticket prices and passes available at five individual resorts:

At Snow Factor, the indoor fresh snow centre in Braehead, you can select how many hours you wish to ski.

Planning to ski a lot during the season? Then get...

...the Ski-Scotland All Areas Season Pass. It allows you to snowboard or ski any of the five Scottish snow areas with one ticket. You can follow the best snow conditions around Scotland and go straight to the lifts with no queuing at ticket offices. Watch out - the number of passes available is limited, so you'll need to snap one up early in the season!
