Councillors have agreed to invest £13.8 million of capital funding into developing Midlothian Snowsports Centre into an all-year-round, multi-activity leisure facility.

Open for business

The centre will remain open during the phased development, which could include:

  • Alpine coaster
  • Zipline
  • Infrastructure upgrades – additional car parking and upgrading of access road to two lanes
  • New reception building for Snowsports Centre
  • Food court and function space
  • Associated retail space – open plan space for one or more tenants
  • Glamping tourist accommodation in wigwams
  • Activity dome with high ropes and soft play
  • Freestyle jump slope upgrade and extension
  • Hotel development opportunity


As part of a pre-application notice, before any formal planning application is submitted, we held a public event on Monday January 28.

Next steps

Your views will help shape any formal planning application, which could be submitted in early spring.
