Snow Factor is Scotland's only indoor REAL SNOW slope and leading centre for ski and snowboard instruction. Open 364 days a year, our children learn in the perfect environment to progress their skills: no wind, no rain, and smaller classes ensure that they have fun, stay safe and receive the very best instruction.
Once you have made it through each skill level, you are ready to leave our dedicated nursery slope and enjoy the UK's longest indoor real snow slope (168m long). For those looking to advance their existing skills, you can train for speed in Snow Factor Race Training or ride rails and kill those kickers in Freestyle Academy.
