More Info

Scotland has five main ski areas, with facilities that have improved in recent years: Nevis Range and Glencoe on the west coast, Glenshee and the Lecht in the east, and Cairngorm above Aviemore. The unpredictability of snow-cover and good conditions is the main factor holding back skiing development in the country. The weather -including also winds and visibility- is the biggest factor that will make your backcountry skiing trip in Scotland heaven or hell. If there is an Arctic blast, Scotland can receive a light fluffy powder, whereas it will be more commonly heavier and wetter stuff if brought in through the Atlantic.



Good to Know
