  From Cairngorm overlooking Loch Morlich

Cairngorm is one of the most popular skiing and boarding destinations in Scotland. With a range of runs from beginners to more advanced along with some off piste for the days there is enough snow. The "Apres ski" in Aviemore is varied and lively during the ski season. "Crofters" is Aviemore's answer to the nightclub.....good fun and a good night out for a crowd of you ...just don't expect too much!

 

Glencoe offers a friendly welcome to all levels of skiers. The Famous Fly Paper run, reputably the steepest piste black run in Scotland, ensure you will be offered some challenging skiing. A good resort for intermediates to advanced skiers and a favourite with boarders due to the unique and varied slopes featuring natural jumps and wide open runs.

Situated in the east of Scotland, this area runs over 3 valleys and four mountains and offers the largest lift system of all the areas in Scotland. There is skiing and boarding for everyone, whatever their level with exclusive nursery areas near the main car park.

 

The Lecht is an ideal place for children to learn with the car park and lifts just moments apart. There is snowmaking equipment (always a bonus with the uncertainty of the snow weather in Scotland!) and there is a designated snowboard fun park for those inclinced to try their stuff on the half pipe and jumps.
It is a family focussed and friendly resort with activities for non-skiers as well as skiers.

  • Best suited to beginners to intermediates
  • 21 runs and 14 lifts
  • Snowboard fun park
  • Snow making machines
  • Other on-site activities for non-skiers such as snow tubing (definately worth a shot!)

The Nevis Range is the most westerly of all the ski areas and also one of the highest and most impressive with the imposing scenery of Ben Nevis and the huge open snowfields. The gondola takes skiers and boarders from the car park to the huge choice of skiing facilities. The huge open bowl makes it a favourite haunt for boarders and all levels of skiers. More advanced skiers/boarders can also enjoy the huge off-piste expanse of the Black Corrie.

  • Best suited to advanced/intermediate levels
  • 35 runs and 12 lifts
  • Great record for late skiing and snowboarding - the runs on the hill hold the snow well into late season.
  • Huge choice of accommodation
  • Good nightlife and apres ski
  • Also excellent for climbers and Mountain bikers
