The resort is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on Rannoch Moor and offers stunning views of the iconic Buachaille Etive Mor. The onsite campsite boasts a large camping area, hook-ups and microlodges. In summer the centre offers chairlift rides, mountain biking (Downhill and XC), tubing, hill-walking, climbing, photography and great home cooked food in the panoramic log cabin cafe. In winter skiing, snowboarding, sledging and avalanche rescue training are available and the resort has both the longest and the steepest ski run in Scotland.
Established in 1956 Glencoe is Scotland's oldest Ski centre and has a reputation as being a great venue for the more experienced skier. With stunning scenery and a great choice of runs including the famous 'flypaper' (The UK's steepest black run) Glencoe is a must visit destination for the more experienced skier and snowboarder.
However what few people know is that Glencoe also has a large plateau area which makes the perfect setting for those new to snow sports. Further improvements to the beginner's area have been made for this season with a new 400m Dopplmayr Button Tow across the plateau which has its very own snow cannon to ensure that the very best snow conditions are always available.
The resort is set among 200hectares of fabulous scenery in the 'Meall a' Bhuiridh Massif' a large basin with outstanding snow holding characteristics which means skiing in late April and May is often possible.
There are 8 lifts, 20 runs, an avalanche transceiver training park, free sledging area (we provide the sledges), ski hire, ski school and 2 cafés with great home cooked food served on a daily basis.
In summer visitors can enjoy sightseeing trips on the chairlift,, downhill and cross country mountain biking and great home cooked food in the panoramic cafe. Onsite accommodation is available all year round in the form of cute microlodges that sleep up to 4 people, camping and camper van hook-ups also available. With showers and drying rooms are available to all guests.
