Learn to Ski & Snowboard at Cairngorm Mountain

The Perfect Mountain Environment

Cairngorm Mountain is the perfect mountain environment for learning to ski or snowboard. With the gentle slopes of the Ptarmigan bowl at the top, our dedicated beginner zone at the base and on-site equipment rental facilities, we have everything you will require to kick-start your snowsports journey.

Plan Your Learning Experience

Though we do not operate our own in-house snowsports school, we work closely with three highly qualified, local businesses who operate independently on the mountain to offer quality instruction and provide our customers with the best learning experience possible.
