Après ski
For something a little bit different, why not 'feel the heel'? Telemarking, which is also known as 'free heel' skiing, is a challenging but rewarding snowsport discipline - and one that everyone can have a go at thanks to lessons at Glenshee.

About the centre

Glenshee, which takes its name from the Gaelic 'Glen of the Fairies', certainly offers one of the most magical skiing experiences in Scotland.

The largest resort in the UK, it covers an area of more than 2,000 acres extending across four mountains and three valleys and boasting 21 lifts and tows.

Glenshee offers a choice of 36 runs comprising 40 kms of pisted snow. The longest single run, Glas Maol, extends to a fantastic 2 kms of skiing, while the extensive snow-making facilities means the centre is often open for longer.

It hasn't always been this way, however. While skiing has been enjoyed at Glenshee since the 1930's, the uplift service was originally provided by two tractors!

Only in 1957, and thanks to Dundee Ski Club, did the resort then take ownership of its first proper tow. But things have moved quickly in the intervening 50 years and these days there is a very modern and distinctively Alpine feel to the resort. A buzzing cafe serves hot drinks and food, while skis, boots, snowboards, snowblades, helmets and other kit are all available to hire.

A ski school also offers value-for-money instruction. Glenshee is rarely going to disappoint, whatever your skiing ability.
