Here are 8 of the best places to ski in Scotland – from Highland ski resorts to dry runs and winter sports centers


As the weather in Scotland turns colder, snow and ice recently hit parts of northern Scotland during the Met Office weather warnings, those who love to ski are looking to strap on their skis and hit the slopes.

2020 and 2021 being slow, mostly snowless years for outdoor ski runs and mountain snow sport Scotland ski resorts, 2022 looks set to be the year that some of the UK’s largest and most popular Scotland-based ski resorts can once again see business pick up.

Thanks to the country’s cold climate and high snow-capped peaks in the Highlands, there is no shortage of ski resorts nestled in and around Scotland’s mountain ranges.

These include renowned ski resorts such as Glenshee Ski Centre, Glencoe Hill Station and Nevis Range by Ben Nevis Hill Station.

But for those looking to cool off on skiing or snowboarding and those completely new to snow sports, there are many dry and indoor slope centers located throughout Scotland that are perfect for beginners, families or those who dread skiing on top of the mountains.

We’ve taken a look at Scotland’s ski resorts and winter sports centers and their Google reviews to round up some of the best places to ski, snowboard and sled in Scotland as the ski season picks up.

However, be sure to check the websites and webcams of all the sites you wish to visit before you go, as the unpredictable and slightly warmer than usual weather in Scotland may see less snowfall than expected in some regions with outdoor ski centers.
