Kids from Dundee primary schools have been hitting the slopes at Ancrum Outdoor Centre.
Primaries across the city have been taking advantage of a school ski programme which involves the children learning the skill at no cost to their families.
In four-week blocks the pupils have been heading to the dry ski slope at the centre where they have been guided in beginners’ techniques.
Derek Napier, outdoor learning manager for Dundee City Council and Leisure and Culture Dundee, said: “Our aim is to provide the very highest standard of ski instruction to Dundee school pupils at a highly subsidised rate to promote inclusion and equality.
“Snow sports can provide quality physical education and meet significant aspects of learning within the Curriculum for Excellence.
“It is remarkable seeing how much the kids have improved from week one to week four.
“They are not only doing physical activity but they are also problem-solving, working as a team and improving social development in an exciting way.
“They don’t even realise they are doing it as they are having fun.”
Mill of Mains Primary pupils took part in their final session this week and 10-year-old Teaghan-Louise Haggart said she is sad it is over.
“I don’t want it to be the last week already – I wish it could be week one again,” she said.
Classmate Clarisse Marriott, also 10, said: “I had never tried skiing before and I was excited when they told me.
“It is really expensive to ski so it has been good that I could come and try it out without my mum having to pay lots of money.
“All of the instructors have been very helpful.”
Rhys Tyrell, 10, added: “I had never tried skiing before and I really enjoyed it. I am sad that this is the last week.”
Steven Mclauchlan, school and family development worker at Mill of Mains, said: “It is great seeing those children who are not as focused in a classroom setting really focusing here.
“You notice that some of the quieter ones are coming out their shell and seem really confident and they are all really encouraging each other and working as a team.
“It is fantastic to see.”
