Skiing at the Lecht centre

Whether you fancy a touch of cross-country or the thrill of the downhill slopes, there are plenty of great places to ski in and around Glenlivet.

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 Lecht 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. The snow lies deep at Glenmulliach Forest (off the Lecht road, 1 miles south of Tomintoul) where the waymarked walk route is suitable for cross-country skiing.

Please 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.
