Glenshee

Glenshee lies on the A93 near Braemar on the road from Blairgowrie.  Glenshee is the largest ski and snowboard area in Scotland and home to the infamous Tiger, one of the most challenging black runs around.  Glenshee also has lots of terrain – both natural and manmade - to keep all abilities happy with endless gullies, bowls, jumps and hits to explore.  On a clear day the views across the Cairngorms National Park are a sight to behold. 

It's 3,504 ft of mountain adventure that beckons to skiers and snowboarders alike. From invitingly easy to the surprisingly steep, Glenshee offers the most extensive skiing and snowboarding in Scotland. Steeps and glades, pisted and unpisted, open bowls and narrow gullies, no matter your ability, Glenshee's mountains have your name on them!

Beginners and novices can gently get to grips with skiing and snowboarding on the extensive nursery slopes next to the main car park. Glenshee is ideal for intermediate skiers & boarders, with no fewer than 26 blue and red runs, varying from the long and exhilarating to the short and steep. Serviced by Britain's largest lift system, the runs extend over 3 valleys and 4 mountains to give an extensive and enjoyable variety of skiing and snowboarding. Experienced skiers and boarders, are able to test their skills on two excellent black runs at Glenshee including the infamous, mogul strewn Tiger which has been a formidable part of the Scottish ski experience for years.
