WE LIKE

  • Excellent ski schools and private ski lessons. Amazing views over Rannoch Moor
  • Excellent wide beginner and intermediate slopes - if a little limited
  • Great for weekends if the weather is sunny and no wind! Very accessible from nearest city-Glasgow

WE DON'T LIKE

  • Very unreliable snow due to the low altitude
  • Overcrowded when snow is present - and especially at weekends. Lift system a little outdated now
  • Weather - the snow may be great but sometimes the bitter chill is too much to ski or board with
