Discover Glenshee, the perfect place for Skiing

Glenshee is known to be Scotland’s largest area of runs for skiing, snowboarding, and sledging.

About 20 miles north of Blairgowrie, Glenshee can be found just off the A93 road. The resort is called "The Three Valleys of Scotland," and when all the lifts are open, the ski area is pretty big. Served mostly by drag lifts because of relentlessly high winds, you can ski in moderately distant areas on the slants of Glas Moal, toward the east. Glenshee's steepest run is probably Glas Moal's west wall, but Tiger Bumps are what most people seem to remember.

A Poma Triple, installed in 2015, serves this run; straight back down, you have 250 meters of vertical descent. Glas Maol has the longest vertical lift served, 301 meters, and the highest lift, 1029 meters. Glenshee can provide knee-deep powder on occasion, but it is often hard, icy, and wrap up as there’s chilly winds.

With 25 miles of downhill runs across four mountains, it is the perfect place to practice your skiing skills. There are 22 lifts and 36 runs, in total, it provides a remarkable variety of natural terrain for skiers and snowboarders of all levels. The Base Cafe is open all year round, and the ski centre at Braemar is open for skiing and snowboarding from mid-December to April. There are jumps, a natural half-pipe, sheltered areas, open pistes, and a challenging slalom racetrack, all ready for you to ski to your hearts content.
