The ski area has seven lifts on Meall a’ Bhuiridh which serve a variety of 19 ski runs. Glencoe is by no means the largest ski centre in Scotland, but it's still a firm favourite with many Scottish skiers and boarders thanks to its unique and exhilarating terrain, and a snow holding record second to none.




So what has Glencoe Ski Slope got to offer?

Head down the Main Basin and into the Canyon, you'll pop out under the Cliff Hanger Chair, which usually has a fun gully to air out of. Keep your speed up and ride across the Plateau to the top of the Access Chair. If there's sufficient snow you can ride all the way to the car park – keep to the left of the chair for some of the best open off-piste runs in Scotland”
