Glencoe Ski Centre, Scotland
(Above is of view north capturing the snow-capped Nevis range of mountains)
My blog this evening is a continuum of that from yesterday which reported on my visit to a ski site in the Highlands of Scotland.
The focus of this post is my visit to the Glencoe Mountain Resort (Ski Centre) in near perfect light and weather conditions (for the time of year). The resort is currently home to Scotland's longest and steepest skiing slopes.
For skiing and snowboarding, there are 14 miles of slopes available. 8 lifts transport the guests. The winter sports area is situated between the elevations of 1181 ft and 3510 ft..
At time of my visit, the facility was extremely well patronized with the car park almost full and long lines for the chair lift up to the higher levels.
Below is a portfolio of my images. Click on each to enlarge.
Here is a video clip of trip down chair lift. Apologies for jolts in early part (due to movement). Stick with it.
