As the weather turns colder and reports of snow on higher ground in England and Scotland start to feature on Met Office warnings, those you enjoy winter sports will start to get itchy feet at the prospect of being able to enjoy some downhill thrills in the not too distant future.
Your winter break in the Alps; North America’s Colorado or Whistler Mountains; or one of the lesser known ski destinations in Finland, Slovenia or Spain may be booked. More locally Scotland’s ski resorts are getting prepared for winter fun.
The destinations of Glencoe, the Cairngorms and the Nevis Range provide a closer to home option for those wanting a snow sport warm up or a skiing break on a budget.
From late December to April the ski runs of Scotland provide quality on piste action for all levels of skier. Whilst the towns and villages surrounding them provide Scottish hostelry at it’s best. Aviemore, in the Cairngorms, has a main street lined with pubs, restaurants and outdoor shops galore, plus nearby you’ll find Scotland’s only Funicular railway which will get you to the top of the mountain with ease.
