There are five different resorts where you can have a go at skiing or snowboarding, with a range of slopes suitable for snowsports fans of all levels, from beginners to seasoned skiers. We are going to visit three of the most famous ones: Glenshee, Nevis Range & The Glencoe!
Glenshee, (Gaelic ‘Glen of the Fairies’), offers one of the most magical skiing experiences in Scotland. The largest resort in the UK, covers an area of more than 2,000 acres extending across four mountains and three valleys and boasting 21 lifts and tows. Glenshee offers a choice of 36 runs comprising 40 kms of pisted snow. The longest single run, Glas Maol, extends to a fantastic 2 kms of skiing, while the extensive snow-making facilities means the centre is often open for longer.
With skiing up to 1190 metres (3,900 feet) Nevis Range reaches high on to the mountain of Aonach Mor and offers skiing and boarding into the spring. The base of the snowsports area is accessed by the UK’s only Mountain Gondola taking visitors from the car park to 650 metres (2,150 feet). The beginner’s area is literally a stone’s throw away from the Snowgoose Restaurant at the Top Station, with a variety of easy green and blue graded runs. An artificial slope also provides skiing opportunities when snow is lean.
The Glencoe is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on Rannoch Moor and offers stunning views of the iconic Buachaille Etive Mor. In winter skiing, snowboarding, sledging and avalanche rescue training are available and the resort has both the longest and the steepest ski run in Scotland. Established in 1956 Glencoe is Scotland’s oldest Ski centre and has a reputation as being a great venue for the more experienced skier. With stunning scenery and a great choice of runs including the famous ‘flypaper’ (The UK’s steepest black run) Glencoe is a must visit destination for the more experienced skier and snowboarder. However what few people know is that Glencoe also has a large plateau area which makes the perfect setting for those new to snow sports. There are 8 lifts, 20 runs, an avalanche transceiver training park, free sledging area, ski hire, ski school and 2 cafés with great home cooked food served on a daily basis.
