Smaller, yet perfectly packaged, The Lecht offers some of the most consistent snow in Scotland, especially as there is also a facility for snow-making.
Situated some 2,090ft (637m) above sea level, The Lecht occupies a stunning location in the eastern Cairngorms and is accessed from one of the most scenically beautiful roads in Scotland, the A939.
There are 18 pisted runs at The Lecht, extending to some 20 kms. For the improver or intermediate skier, seven blue runs and five red runs provide enough of a thrill for a day's outing. Meanwhile, beginners are most likely to head to a wide area closest to the car park.
Here you'll find five green-graded runs, including a wonderfully named Magic Carpet - a conveyer-belt style lift which is ideal for beginners. At the other end of the scale is a black-graded race piste, with timing and slalom poles.
When conditions allow, The Lecht is also able to create a half-pipe and fun park for experienced snowboarders and freestyle skiers. In addition, The Lecht boasts another great winter attraction, snowtubing, which involves sliding down a purpose-made slope in the beginner area on something akin to an inner tyre tube!
