Ski centres on the SnowRoads

Two of Scotland's five Ski Centres are located along the SnowRoads, but which should you head to?

Both the Lecht and Glenshee Ski Centres are located just off the SnowRoads scenic route - and both have their unique advantages to offer.

The Lecht
is particularly well set up for beginners because it boasts a wide, easy-to-ride magic carpet, which in particular kids love. Parents also love The Lecht because they can watch their wee skiers from the comfort of the large glass-fronted café, while cupping a hot chocolate. It’s also a favourite with freestylers due to its rail park and hosts competitions during the season. The new snow factory makes beginner skiing more of a guarantee for the 2019 season.

Best For:
Beginners & Families
Nearest Village: Tomintoul
Where to hire equipment: On site or Goodbrand & Ross nearby at Corgarff

If you’re a fan of chairlifts and like giving your weary legs a rest on the way up, then head to either The Lecht or Glenshee. Glenshee has more terrain and has more scope for more advanced skiers. There is a huge car park here and the amazing journey up over the Cairnwell pass along the SnowRoads to get here is well worth the visit. 

Best For: All Abilities/Groups of friends willing to car share the journey
