Ski Hire Open Daily

Hire your equipment from us and beat the queues up the hill.

Our ski hire is open 9:00 - 17:00 (open later by arrangement) so we recommend getting your ski or board hire the night before so you can make an early start next morning. Cairngorm Mountain can get very busy from early on so hiring from us not only gives you piece of mind, it also saves you queuing.

We recommend you should aim to be at the Cairngorm car park by 8:15.

Loch Insh Ski School

We have taught skiing at the Centre and surrounding ski resorts since the business was founded by Clive Freshwater in 1969. Clive was the Chairman of BASI for 8 years in the 70's. His son's, Andrew Freshwater and Duncan Freshwater, are currently BASI trainers teaching instructors all over the world.

We draw on this knowledge to create the best Scottish skiing experience you can find. Instructors are mentored in-house to ensure our snowsports packages provide a first class experience.


Only Loch Insh offers the flexibility of choosing which resort we work at each day based on the forecast.

The Lecht is only an hour away and offers a safe environment for beginner to intermediate skiers. Cairngorm Mountain has the best beginner conditions when the wind is not too strong over the tops. In the event of both resorts being closed due to bad weather, we have the backup of our own 60m dry slope onsite at Loch Insh to fall back on.
