Snowsports for schools
Schools Ski Programme
The programme allows children to learn snowsports within curriculum time.
"I'm hooked now, I just love to ski. I started as part of my PE course but now I come up on my own with or without my friends, I've even managed to get my Mum to take lessons!" David, S4
This video explains how the programme works.

Useful information for teachers before arranging a visit to the centre.
Additional support needs
We are happy to accommodate children with additional support needs, but please tell us of requirements when booking. Usually the child can participate as part of a class, however there are occasions when safety dictates a one-to-one ratio. We expect the supervising teacher to actively support the lesson and the instructor.
We also offer lessons with our bi-ski, a type of sit ski. It allows individuals with limited movement of the limbs to experience snowsports. The bi-ski is guided by one of our qualified members of staff (depending on availability).
