Our Snowsports Instructors

Our qualified Snowsports instructors have a passion for working with young people. With their support pupils can improve their level of skiing, build their confidence and enhance their learning experience.
We have skiing suitable for school children of all ages and abilities from beginner to advance. We offer adaptive instruction for children with physical / learning disabilities. Please tell us of any disabilities when making your booking so we can accommodate the individuals.

Supporting Curriculum for Excellence

Outdoor education sessions are a brilliant way to help children and young people achieve the experiences and outcomes identified through Curriculum for Excellence.
We’ve structured our outdoor learning sessions to:

  • Allow pupils to develop new skills, experience personal achievement and build resilience and confidence.
  • Develop skills for life long learning and work
  • Promote cross curricular links in areas such as health and well being
  • Engage pupils who have a more kinaesthetic or visual learning style
