Visitor Reviews of Glencoe Mountain Resort

Dickyboy from United Kingdom writes:

Old lifts, a bit slow, windy, flat light but who cares! I've had some of my most enjoyable days skiing here and I'm taking Cham, La Grave, etc into account when I say this. The views can be staggering, the snow can be fantastic, the steepness is exciting; good for beginners and experts alike.
I don't care about the quirks, if you want to be part of the skiing machine go to Zermatt where there's cham etc. but don't go the Glencoe and expect the same. If you are lucky you'll get one of the best views from a ski resort in Europe and quality skiing which will test you. Great memories, thank you.
