Scotland snowboarding holidays: a great way to spend your winter holidays.

Scotland snowboarding holidays are becoming more and more popular as the years go by. It seems that a lot of people are drawn to more exotic locations sometimes causing blindness to what's right on their doorstep.

On great advantage straight off the bat is the fact that a snowboarding holiday in Scotland is much cheaper than flying to The Alps or BC. While there are more famous slopes elsewhere, Scotland offers a great variety of beginner to expert slopes so let's take a look at what they have on offer.

Glencoe: This is one of the favourite resorts in Scotland thanks to a great blend of beginner and intermediate slopes.  There are two expert slopes as well but this is definitely aimed at the intermediate crowd.

The resort is so popular it can some time suffer from a huge increase in people making the slopes a little crowded. It can also be hard to plan your trip due to the irregular snowfall. Other than that there are great facilities for beginners and exhilarating slopes for intermediate and experts.

It costs only £25 for a half day pass which is much less than bigger European or North American slopes which normally hit the £60-£80 range. Check the GoSki (http://www.goski.co.uk) website for prices and accommodation, you can even pick up ski insurance for cheap.

We found a room at the Isle of Glencoe for only £120 a night. This will sleep two adults and has a pool, television and all the other mod cons you would expect from a 3 star hotel. You can even set up your flights at GoSki so be sure to hit them up. With regular flights from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness you should have no problem getting things sorted!

Snowboarding holidays in Scotland might sound far fetched but check them out for yourself, you will not be disappointed.
