Skiing and Snowboarding in the Cairngorms National Park

Your one-stop guide to skiing and snowboarding in the Cairngorms National Park.  The Cairngorms National Park is home to 3 of Scotland’s 5 ski centres – CairnGorm Mountain, Glenshee and The Lecht.

CairnGorm Mountain near Aviemore is the best known of the ski and snowboard areas in the National Park.  It is also the highest and holds the snow well throughout the season.  There is lots of variety at CairnGorm Mountain and the terrain park’s, kickers and rails have attracted some of Britain’s best snowboarders and skiers to the area.

The Lecht lies on the A939 between Tomintoul and Strathdon and has something for everyone.  It is particularly good for families and beginners with excellent nursery slopes and even a magic carpet to help get you started!  The Lecht also has a great park for skiers and snowboarders who wish to test their skills on the jumps and rails.

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. 

For those who wish to leave the lifts and the crowds behind, the Cairngorms National Park offers endless opportunities for ski touring and back country exploring just make sure you check the weather forecast and avalanche report before you go and ensure you have all the right equipment and know how to use it!  There are lots of guides and training courses available in the area to make sure that you can make the most of the snow in the Cairngorms National Park in safety so why not give them a try?
