Glenshee Alpine Ski/Snowboard Beginner Day

Fancy learning to ski? Come along and enjoy a Fun Beginner Ski Day at Glenshee Ski Centre with Ancrum Outdoor Centre. We are running trips throughout the ski season on a number of Saturdays starting from 12th January through to 16th March inclusive.

On arriving at Glenshee, your instructor will help orientate you at the ski Centre and after collecting your lift passes from the ticket office you will head to the beginner ski area called the 'dink dink & rope tow' . The morning will consist of expert tuition led by our qualified BASI/ SnowsportScotland instructors. After lunch you will have free time and the opportunity to practice the new skills for yourself, before returning back to the minibus for 3pm departure.

After booking online, customers are required to contact the Centre to provide their height, weight and shoe size but we do recommend dropping into the Centre to get sized up and try on the ski boots for comfort.

Course Cost

The cost is £70.00 for Adults and £60.00 for Juveniles (Under 16yrs). This price includes transport, ski equipment including clothing (if required), instruction and beginner area lift pass. Bought individually the prices for this package would normally total well over £100 each so grab a bargain.

Cafe facilities are available but we recommend you bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink (hot/cold) as you can go back to the bus for lunch. These are really popular, great value courses so book up fast as there are limited spaces available. Online Bookings must be made before 12noon on the Friday before the trip.

Pre Course Bonus

Free one hour lesson on our dry ski slope on a Thursday evening from 6-7pm (prior to the course you are booked on). It is essential that you pre-book this by contacting Ancrum Admin staff on 01382 435911. Arrive at the Centre at 5.30pm for equipment and clothing fitting.
