Loch Insh Outdoor Centre Ski School

Loch Insh Watersports Snowsports Scotland affiliated ski school, offering ski and snowboard hire and instruction on our 60m dry ski slope and at the Scottish resorts.

Year round our slope is the best place to learn to ski with the perfect gradient for beginners as well as park features added in the afternoon for budding freestylers to play on Parents can watch on from the comfort of the Boathouse Restaurant bar. Our Instructors are qualified Scottish Snowsports or BASI Instructors and follow the snowsport awards scheme Snowlife.

We encourage you to explore movements, sensations, terrain and sliding equipment safely, whilst having a lot of fun developing the skills and independence which will help you really enjoy snowsports.

There are nine levels in the scheme, plus two levels for the 5s and under (called the fun awards).

These awards aim to give our clients greater incentives to come back and make progress, especially at the intermediate phase.

Using the awards we can help our clients to enjoy all this safely and in a fun and exciting way.
