Glencoe Terrain

Steep and challenging on the upper mountain with the infamous "flypaper" a challenge for even the very best skier. From the summit there are a wealth of different routes back down the hill from the mellow "happy Valley" to some amazing off piste routes. There will always be some friendly locals on hand to provide advice on the best way down the mountain.

For those new to the sport the plateau area provides some of the best beginners terrain in the country. Match that up with the amazing Glencoe ski school and you have the perfect combination for ensuring that beginners have a great introduction to snowsports.
