Skiing Glenshee Scotland

We skied at Glenshee Ski Resort Scotland- Good Skiing Glenshee Scotland

Skiing in Scotland can be a bit hit and miss because of the weather, but every resort these days has the same problem, Scotland is not alone.

We skied for the first time at the glenshee ski resort Scotland and had a great day out.We stayed in Perth,less than an hour away by car from Glenshee,had breakfast in a local hotel,hired our gear,parked the car,bought our passes and hit the slopes.
We took some basic lessons on site which were very helpful for beginners like ourselves.

Glenshee's impressive 21 lifts and 36 runs offer an amazing diversity of natural terrain for all standards of skiers and snowboarders.

There are lots of options to choose from - you can join a class, go private, hire an instructor for your group, get into race training or simply take advantage of one of the great value package deals.

The season generally commences around late December and runs until Easter, but can be longer or shorter depending on snow cover.
