Why Free-Ski?

Free-Ski has worked hard to gain a reputation as Scotland’s premier snow sports school. The only BASI Accredited Ski School on Cairngorm Mountain.

Still a family-run business, we specialise in ski and snowboard lessons for beginners, up to experienced skiers and boarders. 

Whether you are looking for your first experience on snow, to gain more confidence and independence, or to refine your technique, our team of expert instructors will be perfect for you. 

As well as our regular snow programs of Wee-Ski and Teen-Ski we offer private and group lessons and corporate events.

For more information about levels, or for online booking, follow this link.

Dry Slope

Our Dry slope lessons run for four consecutive weeks just before the ski season, the perfect way to kickstart your winter or brush up before an early-season vacation.  To ensure continuity, you must be available for all four weeks.

Regular kids classes, for ages 4 – 12 year olds, are available as well as evening sessions for adults and teens. Ever skied in a floodlit forest before? If not then try the dry slope night sessions. Perfect for building confidence and getting you ready to tackle the slopes.

Wee Ski

This is our on-snow programme for children aged 4-16 years. It runs over 4 weekends on either Saturday or Sunday. To ensure continuity, you must be available for all four weeks.

The package is 4 x 4 hours of instruction, equipment hire and slope pass. Blocks will run in January and March, 9:30am – 2:30pm.

Please note that a minimum of Level 2 experience is required

Private Lessons

If you want the most from your time with us then a private lesson is the way to go. 

Engineered entirely to you and/or your party, these lessons can take from total beginners to confidence on snow. Already a good skier but want to improve specific technique? In a private lesson, our instructors can focus on getting the most from your skiing and have you setting edges and carving turns in no time.

For groups of 11 or more, please contact us directly by email

Side Country &
Ski Touring

Sidecountry is essentially ski touring within the bounds of the resorts we know and love. It is sometimes lift-accessed, but also introduces “skinning” to access areas of in-bounds skiing that would otherwise be difficult to get to. During the course, we’ll ski off-piste but there are no hard rules to say that a lap of your favourite piste can´t be part of the day!

If you are 16 years or over and at least level 4, book now!
