Skiing

You don’t need to head abroad to experience fabulous skiing. We’ve got plenty of great places right here. Whether you fancy a touch of cross-country skiing or the thrill of the downhill slopes.

Downhill skiing

Set in the slopes of the Ladder Hills on the eastern edge of the Glenlivet Estate is the Lecht 2090 ski centre.  Based at 2090 feet (645m) above sea level the centre is perched at the top of the pass between Tomintoul and Strathdon. The centre provides top-notch downhill skiing. With 20 runs, chairlift and 12 tows there is a variety of skiing for everyone – from beginner skiers to intermediates, making it ideal for all the family.

Cross-country skiing

If there is good snowfall then cross-country skiing is a great way to explore Glenlivet. We've waymarked one ski trail at Glenmulliach Forest (off the Lecht road, 1 miles south of Tomintoul) which if the conditions are snowy usually has good snow cover.

But remember these are informal routes that are not managed for skiing – we do not carry out pisting or track cutting, and there may be rough sections to negotiate. Please also be aware that access to Glenmulliach Forest is down an untreated track and may only be accessible by off-road vehicles in snow.

If you’d like to know more about cross-country skiing and snow conditions, please contact our Ranger Service.
