Best for begginer
Date Posted: 16.56hrs on Wed 14 Mar 18
Hi Folks
I've skied Glencoe and Cairngorm already this year with my preference Glencoe, I enjoyed the middle sections of Glencoe particularly but was wondering if there where better areas to try in the other resorts for beginners? Hoping to head up 26th march hoping conditions remain as good as they are. I'm also not adverse to Glencoe if this is the recommendation as I love it there anyway :-)

By far the best for beginners is the Lecht- would recommend doing the magic carpets the then the kestrel followed by eagle2 or osprey

Depends if you are looking for terrain for those in the first day or two or longer green runs for confident snowplough turners?

For people comfortable with the various platuea runs at Glencoe, the blues at the Lecht would be good, as would the lower mountain runs of the Quad Chair, Alpha Tow and Rob Roy Tow at Nevis when the cover is good on the lower mountain as it is now. Nevis and Lecht have advantage of selection of blues Chairlift served.

For those who can cope with the Plateau Poma then lots of options at Glenshee too, but aside from Claybokie they tend to be faster and more prone for launching you!

You should be fine at any of them, they've all got decent runs for beginners.

If you like Glencoe and the snow's good there then nothing wrong with visiting again!
