There are lots of places where you can find tuition for skiing and snowboarding, such as Speyside Sports for the Aviemore area. There are also dry ski ramps, ski and snowboard hire company’s and winter clothing hire. You can pretty much just arrive in Aviemore (book your accommodation first though) and start skiing and snowboarding. If you have never tried these sports before you will probably need to spend money on goggles, hats, gloves, etc., or borrow them before you leave.
The Spey is a triumph of nature, this beautiful and prolific river is set amongst some of Scotland’s finest mountain and forest scenery and is one of the four most well renowned fishing rivers in the world.
