Ski and Snowboarding

There are lots of places where you can find tuition for skiing and snowboarding, such as Speyside Sports for the Aviemore area.  There are also dry ski ramps, ski and snowboard hire company's and winter clothing hire. You can pretty much just arrive in Aviemore (book your accommodation first though) and start skiing and snowboarding.  If you have never tried these sports before you will probably need to spend money on goggles, hats, gloves, etc., or borrow them before you leave.

Water Sports Centre

There is a water sports centre which appears to have canoes and probably wind surfers on the side of Loch Morlich where the sandy beach is.  I believe it opens toward the end of March.

Sled Dog Centre

On the way to Cairngorm you will notice a sign for this centre.  You can only drive part way - be prepared for a walk, but I suppose you are really meant to use your dogs!
