About Snow Factor


Who we are

Snow Factor is the longest, real-snow slope in the UK and is Scotland’s only year-round ski centre!

We pride ourselves on the perfect conditions to learn snowsports, with lessons tailored to suit any level of experience.
Our fresh snow is always the perfect condition for enjoying your time on the slopes, whether you are practising your skills or learning new ones.

We love snowsports and we want every visitor to leave looking forward to their next visit with eager anticipation. We take pride in the number of people who have learned to ski or snowboard at our facilities under the guidance of our expert and passionate instructors. Nothing gives them greater pleasure than seeing beginners progress and become competent on our slopes and ski resorts around the world.

Our wide variety of amenities ensures that there is something for everyone to enjoy. From cruising down our main slope, sledging with the kids or enjoying an ice-cold beer in Bar Varia, you can do it all just 10 minutes from Glasgow City Centre.
