Venue type: Outdoor

Glenshee's impressive 22 lifts and 36 runs offer an amazing diversity of natural terrain for all standards of skiers and snowboarders.
Beginners and novices can gently get to grips with skiing and snowboarding on the extensive nursery slopes next to the main car park. There are lots of options to choose from: you can join a class, go private, hire an instructor for your group, get into race training or take advantage of one of their package deals.

After a few lessons, it won't be long before you can master the lifts at road level, which opens up a much larger area of runs for novices, serviced by eleven lifts.

Glenshee is ideal for intermediate skiers and 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.

You can also go Mountain Biking at Glenshee and events here include Skimo Scottish Skiing Race and auctions of old ski lift chairs for those like like a bit of memorabilia!
