Visitor Reviews of The Lecht

Sam from United Kingdom writes:

We visited the Lecht in Feburary 2013. We were a mixed ability group, some complete beginners and some intermediates. We found a great mixture of runs for all our levels. Short, but I found more interesting than over at Cairngorm. No queues and we found an efficient system for hiring equipment. All in all, we had a great day on the slopes.

We were staying in Tomintoul, just a few minutes down a very snowing road, which meant we had flexibility about which day we went. I strongly advise that future visitors show flexibility when visiting, as we waited all week for the right conditions (15cm the night before). This covered up all icy patches that you often find in Scotland.

One more thing, I also advise potential visitors to check this website and the webcams before visiting, and not trust the Lecht website. Though personally I would only choose to ski in Scotland when there has been some fresh snow a day or two before, if there is no snow in the week, the conditions are most likely icy.
