For all you skiers out there! The recent cold snap has left enough snow for Cairngorm Mountain to start it's skiing season today.
So if snowsports are one of your passions, why not move up to the North of Scotland where we have cornered the market. Where ever you are based in the North of Scotland (with the exception of the islands of course : ) ) you will have skiing pretty much on your doorstep. Oban and Fort William have Glencoe and Nevis Range ski areas within easy reach, trainees in Aviemore and Grantown have Cairngorm mountain just up the road whilst for those in Inverness it is an easy drive in under the hour. For those on the Grampian scheme, Glenshee and the Lecht are both within easy distance.
So why not pack up your skiis or snowboard and head North to where the snow is? Last year we were skiing from December through to the end of April. To get an idea of what we have up here, have a look at these videos from Ski Scotland.
And for those of you with a serious sense of adventure!! (and no sense of self preservation!)
