All The Resources You Need for Skiing in Aviemore

Posted by Hilton Coylumbridge, February, 2015

Mention the idea of world-class skiing to a group of UK residents and chances are they’ll tell you all about the wonders of the Alps, the Rockies or some other far-off foreign mountain range. Of course it’s no secret that skiing opportunities exist in the UK, but at the same time there are few that realise some of the best winter sports in Europe can be found right here in Scotland.

Here at our hotel in Aviemore, we’re blessed with an abundance of landscapes that make for truly outstanding ski opportunities in the winter. Better yet, with many of the finest slopes having been open to the public for generations, the standard and range of amenities and facilities on offer today is genuinely world-class in every respect.

For newcomers and seasoned professionals alike, there’s plenty on offer for the whole family. Find your feet for the first time at one of the region’s established ski schools, or get straight down to business across the challenging runs and brilliant off-piste ski opportunities. And if all that wasn’t enough, cross-country skiing is something you really haven’t experienced until you’ve tried it out Aviemore style!

Our on-site School of Snowsports brings newcomers of all ages the perfect opportunity to learn the ropes under the watch of expert instructors – you’ll be surprised what you’re capable of with the right guidance!
