Aberdeen Snowsports Winter Festival 2018

Join us in celebrating the approach of winter with the Aberdeen Snowsports Winter Festival!

On Saturday 3rd November, Aberdeen Snowsports Centre, located in Garthdee, will be opening their doors for the Aberdeen Snowsports Winter Festival, a day-long event giving people of all ages and abilities the chance to spectate, enjoy, and even try various winter activities, along with sampling local food and drink. 


The festival is free to enter to spectate and sample the delicious food and drink. As part of the day we will have our Go Big or Go Home competition - showcasing some of the best up-and-coming Park & Pipe freestyle skiers and snowboarders, along with taster lessons for new skiers and snowboarders, and the Snowsport Scotland Futures Snow Awards for aspiring skiers and snowboarders looking to develop their skills.  We’ll also have a mini Riglet park for tots snowboarders with see-saws and ramps to ride over and Nordic Walking sessions for anyone looking to find out this emerging activity for getting more out of walking. Sessions need to be booked in advance for a small £2 charge (see below for details)


For food and drink lovers you’re in for a treat. The award winning Deeside Brewery will be onsite serving their range of small batch handcrafted ales and lagers. The gorgeous “La Cantina” will be serving up Mexican Food made with passion and Aberdeen Snowsports Club will be flipping their quality sausages and burgers faster than you can say front flip.
