There are five ski centres in Scotland, each one with its own unique character and attractions. They are the ideal spot for skiing and other winter sports among spectacular mountain landscapes.
Although downhill skiing has perhaps the highest profile in Scotland, cross country (or Nordic) skiing is increasingly popular with those willing to get off the piste and away from the crowds
Cross-country skiing (or Nordic skiing) is a popular choice for all ages, and can be viewed both as a less energetic form of skiing than Alpine or a far more vigorous one – it just depends how you go about it!
And if you don’t ski or a snowboard, then simply enjoy some great winter walking, or if you’d like to increase your confidence walking in these wintry conditions, sign up for a course on winter navigation and learn to build a snow hole!
Depending on the weather and the individual area, the skiing season can last from November to May, so there’s really no excuse not to get up here and give skiing and snowboarding in Scotland a try!
