Children Ski/Board Programmes

CairnGorm Shredders

Our Cairngorm Shredders courses are kid’s specific programmes offering the opportunity to learn in a fun and safe environment with great instructors. The course is age and level specific so your child will be in a group with others of similar ability, and age. We have a ratio of 8 children to 1 instructor, ensuring your child gets the most out of each lesson.

Burton Riglet

The CairnGorm Mountain Snow School has recently invested in a healthy stock of Burton Snowboards Riglet equipment, which means that our qualified instructors can get the little ones started earlier, with boards as small as 70cm, easy one strap bindings and warm velcro boots to make sure your young explorers are as comfortable as possible.


Our Burton Riglet snowboard lessons place emphasis on having as much fun as possible, with no confusing technical jargon! Our main priority is on giving the kids the best possible experience on snow. Due to U5’s needing more attention from our instructors our Riglet lessons run on a 1:1 ratio for under 5s and a 2:1 ratio if requested for 6-8 year olds. Our Riglet lessons run daily at peak times and on a private request basis at other times.

Please note, the Snow School will open for lesson bookings from the 5th November.
