Glenshee lies just off the A93 road some 20 miles north of Blairgowrie. The resort is titled the 3 valleys of Scotland and when all lifts are open, the ski area really is quite extensive by British standards. Served mainly by drag lifts due to persistently high winds you can ski in relatively remote locations on the slopes of Glas Moal, to the east. The steepest run at Glenshee is probably the west wall on the side of Glas Moal but it is the Tiger Bumps that people seem to remember. This run is served by an ancient chairlift that is hard to get onto and you never feel truly safe until you get off. But then you have the 330 metre vertical descent straight back down. On its day, Glenshee can offer knee deep powder but it is often hard, icy and dogged by chilling winds. Accommodation can be found in Blairgowrie to the south or in Braemar to the North. One final comment; the A93 is known to block very easily and road conditions can be very hazardous so make sure you go prepared with a shovel and some grit!

Resorts close to Glenshee include: Cairngorm (37 km), The Lecht (45 km), Glencoe Mountain Resort (86 km), Nevis Range (94 km), Lowther Hills (160 km),

Visitor Reviews of Glenshee


Peter from United Kingdom writes:

I went to Glenshee during this February half-term. I was worried that crowds would be prohibitive but hats off to the centre, it was awesome. There were some challenging runs, it was busy but well organised, and the snow was brilliant. The moment when navigating a steep red run into third valley and the mountains peaked through the mist will live with me for a long time. On top of that we got to take the kids up the chairlift as non-skiers and they are still talking about it!
