Hit the slopes this winter

Snow Sports in Scotland

Did you know, here at The Kingsmills we are only a 30-minute drive away from the magnificent Cairngorm Mountains? That means you can easily access a range of exhilarating snow sports during your stay with us in Scotland this winter.

This year, there has been excellent snow fall and excitement is mounting! The snow sports season starts on 19th December 2020 and usually runs until April, depending on the weather. So, let’s take a look at some of the activities on offer …

Skiing

Whether you’re an experienced skier or a complete beginner, the Cairngorms is a magical ski destination in Scotland. It’s the most visited resort in the country. With 35 different runs, the longest stretching for around 3km from top to bottom, plus several freestyle areas throughout. There are three local ski schools, offering lessons from beginner to expert level, for ages 5 and up.  Equipment hire is also available.

Snowboarding

For those who prefer snowboarding, you can hire everything you need to get started. The Cairngorm’s pisted runs and freestyle areas are ideal for this popular winter sport. Again, lessons are available for all levels, from age 5.

Tubing

Tubing is a wonderful winter activity suitable for ages 4 up to adult. Sitting in an inflatable snow tube and whizzing downhill, this is a great family-friendly way to experience the Cairngorms. The high-speed slide is 70 m high with two parabolic turns, making it perfect for thrill-seekers.

Staying safe

This year, there are extra procedures in place to keep you safe, due to the coronavirus pandemic. So, if you are planning to visit us for a snow sports break this winter, please take a moment to read our Safely Sound guidelines and also, follow the steps in the video below while on the mountain.
