Winter Snow Sports
Snow’s been falling, all around us…
And that means there’s not only some seriously stunning views from our windows, but the Glencoe Mountain slopes are officially open for snow sports!
All through December we’ve been waiting for the day for the snow to fall thick enough for us to take to the mountains. We’ve been on the edge of our skis, and finally that day is here.
Just as we’d waxed up our boards and sharpened our edges all ready for some festive skiing, Storm Barbara, closely followed by Storm Conor, came crashing down on our plans faster than a free flowing avalanche.
But now just in the nick of time for New Year, we’ve been given the green light by our friends up at Glencoe Mountain.
For the first day of the season today, Mugs Alley, Coire Pollach Run, Plateau Run, The Wall and Wall Crossover are all open for snow sports, with the rest of the slopes opening once the mountains are covered by snow.
Glencoe Mountain’s home to the longest and steepest ski runs in Scotland, but it caters to all levels of skiers and boarders. Beginners can enjoy the gentle plateau runs, while experts can try out an incredible variety of terrain.
It’s all waiting just a 20 minute drive from our front door. The snow covered scenery’s absolutely stunning – you’ll struggle to find a better spot for outdoor activities this winter. And you don’t have to ski or board either, you can pop up for a bite to eat, watch the people scooting around the slopes, or you can always take a little walk or sledge and build a snowman.
However you spend your time on the mountains, you’ll return to a roaring log fire, a cosy room and a hearty meal and of course the obligatory hot toddy at our bar.
