Unfortunately the snow has been very scarce this year. The staff at Glenshee are always fab, always on hand to help the little ones with tows or give us a helping hand in the new shop. So much choice with runs to suit all abilities. 3 cafés to enjoy a wee coffee or bite to eat during our day. We... More

Listened to people saying how good skiing is in the alps for years and they have never mentioned Scotland. I have seen with my own eyes that Scottish skiing can be first class. There appears to be something for everyone and the cafe is not bad but utterly packed at lunchtimes of course

Tons of lifts and runs catering for a broad skill level. Proper ski/boarding without having to get on a plane. Only problem is snow conditions, hit on a recent snow dump with blue skies though and it's excellent!

Glenshee ski center never disappoints us. We had a great time there. The kids having fun time sledging and making new friends. The cafe is lovely with selections of drinks and pastries. A cup of hot and warm coffee is all you need after a cold day. The center equipped with clean toilet and baby changing room.

So good to be out in the bracing Scottish air and a super drive to get to Glenshee from Dundee via Blairgowrie and the Kirton of Glenisla. The back roads are great and you are rewarded with spectacular views along the way - just no speeding as some roads are quite narrow.

Took a snowboard day trip in March this year during a week of good snowfall at Glenshee. Was very lucky through the week as it was quiet and a sunny day, great conditions for hitting the slopes. This was the first time my partner and I got to use the new 3-man chairlift to reach the top of the Cairnwell... More

Family day out yesterday up the hills. An return thought we would stop for coffee. Mocha and hot chocolate. Total rubbish couldn't tell the difference between them and dish water. Was going to complain but as it's a one man show behind the counter I saved my breath.
