    Scotland's winter sports centre

    Skiing & snowboarding.

    It's not the Alps, but it's the best you'll get in the UK. The winter weather is so variable that you can't expect good conditions even in mid winter.

    I took my son and his schoolfriend in February 09, and they had a lot of fun. Lots of snow - the most for many years.

    Getting there was tough - snowing throughout the 2 hour drive.

    Get there early if the weather & conditions are right - the car parks were full by late morning one of the days.

    Equipment: They have equipment hire on the mountain, and also plenty places in town. It was £30 for boots and skis for a 15 y-o for 2 days. Some places will take advance bookings. We used Nevisport on the main street.

    A ski pass was £17.50 for the full day. They also offer half day passes. Buy in town rather than on the mountain, to avoid long queues. See the website below as they sell passes in town.

    All Outdoor Sports - the National Centre

    by scotlandscotour Written Apr 29, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Aviemore is the Scottish Centre for Outdoor Sports, based upon the Cairngorm Mountains and the River Spey, together with the huge woods of conifers of the hinterland.

    Ski, snowboard, mountain bike, gravity sports, street luge, ice-climb, canoe, sail, white-water raft, sled-dog, walk, ...

    The Cairngorms is THE place for all this and more - because it is a huge National Park. The area is protected meaning only the serious and skilled can access the remote areas, but the area around Aviemore gives everyone a taste of this freedom, a sense of adventure, and a place to discover their limits!

    Equipment: Everything can be hired on site, at a price.

    There are activities for all levels, so just do what you fancy, and ignore the looks of fashion moguls.
