About the Snowsports Centre

Set into the hillside of the stunning Pentland Hills Regional Park, Midlothian Snowsports Centre offers all the fun and adrenaline you'd expect from Britain's biggest artificial slope.

Our 2 main slopes, 3 nursery slopes, fun slope and range of freestyle features mean we've got something to satisfy every level of ability.

Because the slopes are artificial you can enjoy snowsports all year round.

  • You may only practise on the slopes if you have had prior instruction.
  • You may practise on the Main Slope if you can ski/board competently and use the lifts and tows. 
  • The nursery slopes are not available for practice.
  • We do not allow instruction by anyone other than our instructors.
