We booked for the kids to have a snowboarding lesson. They loved it. We could hire all the ski wear we needed. Very surreal going in from a wam outside to freezing cold. The instructors were good but there were 2 instructors for the group (of 8 kids) but only 1 doing the actual instructing - we couldnt work out... More

We booked for snowboarding lessons as it was something that we've been thinking on for quite some time, the initial person we spoke to didn't really seem with it, however, the staff were all really friendly and helpful, and with the groups being so small it really allows for proper lessons so that you get the most from it all....

I'd just like to say that having finally completed lesson 5 of my block of skiing lessons that my instructor Scott T was absolutely fantastic. He was friendly, enthusiastic, helpful and very very patient. Many thanks Scott!

If you have a job looking after someone, this is an ideal location as it has absolutely everything you need. Cinema, eateries, pool tables and bowling. The perfect location for a day out.

Our third private snowboarding lesson at Braehead and each time the experience has been great. Improving in massively each time, it has been worth getting private lessons indoor. Tiree took our lesson yesterday and had lots of patience with my youngest son who learns slower and needs a bit more reassurance. She held his hands throughout the lesson when needed... More
