Skiing in the UK is hit and miss sorted a last minute trip to Glenshee having seen the five day forecast. Result one good day a bit overcast but loads of snow and no queues. Day two blue skies big lumps of powder off Glas Maol and near alpine conditions as good a days skiing as I have had all year. The lifts are hard work and you dont get a rest and the runs are shorter but a brilliant and unexpected extra couple of days on the snow. (read more)

Glenshee is the largest ski resort in Scotland, stretching over 3 valleys, with a total of 22 lifts. I ski there regularly with my family and love it. Staff are friendly and approachable both in the base area and on the hills. Tips; Don't use the outside toilets at the base area. These are owned by Grampian council who do not maintain them well at all. Not pleasant. There are toilets inside the cafe area or at the other cafes on the hills, Much better. If coming up at the...

Spent a few days here skiing with family. Not a good idea the ski pass was incredibly over priced for what was on offer. The food was cheap and undercooked and charged at gourmet prices. Over zealous ski patrol who started screaming at 10 year old boy. Save your money go to the alps (read more)

Went to Glenshee on 19th Jan 2013, Note to self: big mistake to go at the weekend, Biggggg snow day at the weekend, so conditions were very reasonable !! However only half the lifts were open so queue's were mad, 20 mins for tickets to board and don't bother if you want to hire over an hour extra !!! Then queue's for poma's were up to 40 mins, that's about 3 times down a piste in the morning ! ! ! and to top it all off some guy from the ski patrol suggesting it was the punters fault the...

I skied at Glenshee yesterday and found the following.
Plus points - Lots of uplift so on a sunny, snowy Sunday there were no queues the whole day - Cairngorm the day before had 20 minute waits at times! There are lots of cafes and toilets scattered around. Lots of variety in the runs. Beautiful location and ample parking. Lots to explore all day as the area is nicely spread out.
Minus points - Contrary to other reviews I've seen, I found the lift staff unhelp and uninterested,... (read more)

I have just been to Glenshee for the first time. There were great conditions at the mountain today and I was very surprised by the skiable area on the mountain. There are lots of pisted runs and wide open non-pisted areas which had excellent snow cover and very few rocks (which is unusual for Scotland).
The resort is really spread out so there is plenty of room on the slopes. The pomas go across about 4 different valleys so you can travel quite far, going up and down across multiple... (read more)

Glenshee is excellent. We have skied there for years. This year we have had four trips and all had great snow and three out of four had fantastic weather. The fourth was a bit overcast making the snow surface difficult to see. May just have been my goggles !
Food is excellent - bacon rolls fab. Baked potatoes and salad lovely too. Two cafes in the mountains and one down at the car park. Tows fine to use although one of the T-Bars - to the right of Butcharts, not recommended with a young... (read more)

Good Points: Very well built pistes, easily accessed from the road, vararity of runs, good pisting by the team.
Bad Point: Long time before the perfect day emerged, icy in busy areas, some long queues particully for hire
General Comments: Glenshee has to be the best ski centre I have yet been to, with plenty of varaity in the runs, there was always something new to try out, the conditions on that day were perfect, all the avaliable runs were open, I will definately be going back there,... (read more)

Glenshee is a lovely resort with a whole host of runs to go at. However for me the antiquated button lifts were tricky at best, and I thought downright impossible once the snow started to deteriorate. Best left to the pro's at that stage. Bearing in mind the cost of the lift pass, it was frustrating to say the least for me to spend the day falling off a button lift.
We visited in late Feb 2009, starting in good snow, and skiing around bare spots and huge holes in the snow to fast streams... (read more)

Glenshee is excellent with over 20 lifts and 30 runs which enable skiers of all abilities to ski here. The facilities here are really good with classes for beginners, restaurants and snow maintenance, its ideal for someone to learn to ski without having to travel further afield.
We stayed at a B&B locally and drove in each day, the car park is located right by the ski lifts so you can get stuck in straight away.
The views are absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend,... (read more)
