CAN ANYBODY HELP ME CHOOSE A DECENT SKI RESORT IN SCOTLAND PLEASE?

Hi Everyone

I'm considering visiting Glen Shee in Scotland over Christmas/New Year 2017/2018

Can anyone tell me if this would be the most snow guaranteed resort in the UK?? I'm hoping to be in the UK for some of the festive season.

Any reviews, cheap accommodation tips, cheap ski rental tips, piste tips etc etc, would be greatly appreciated. I'm a very good skier and an average snowboarder. I also enjoy most other Winter Sports.

Best Wishes, and thanks in advance Ski Peeps!!

No. Ask again a couple of days before Christmas.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Ok, thank you, will try to remember. RJS - are there any other resorts/snow domes in Scotland/North of England, that you would recommend for skiing/boarding?

the only place you can 'guarantee' skiing on snow in scotland at that time will be the braehead snow dome.

at xmas/ new year- you may get lucky and some of the ski centres might have enough snow to get some runs open. but generally you are looking at January before everywhere has options! the best thing to do is get looking at www.winterhighland.info as people post proper descriptions/ snow reports/ pictures from their day so you get an accurate picture of whats going on.

sadly scottish skiing is quite unpredictable- good snow but too much wind, not enough snow, rain, ice/ boilerplate runs...... but when its good, its amazing! you just cant plan when these days will come

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@Ingrid Rebekah, if your profile is correct and you’re coming from Channel Islands, I’d only recommend Scotland if you had to come here for other reasons, particularly at that time of year. While the skiing here can be great, it is (as others have noted) very unpredictable. If you’re travelling all that distance specifically for skiing then head to the alps.

I completely agree with this. Scotland is great if you don't mind basic infrastructure and short runs. However, If you want guaranteed snow and to book in advance then Scotland is not the place. It is the place if you're local or have to be here, but you need to be thinking only a couple of days in advance.

There are some winters when we've had no skiable snow in Scotland at Christmas. In terms of best bet, that will depend on prevailing weather conditions at the time - North-Westerly cold showers will get Nevis and maybe Cairngorm, Easterlies/NorthEasterlies Glenshee or Lecht (generalisations - a big Atlantic storm can cover the whole of the North of Scotland in one night with a lovely blanket of snow - remember a fab New Year back in 2007 or 2008, I think).
While right now Glenshee has got a wee bit of snow and is recommending sledges not skis, we have done skiing late November/early December there.
When there's good snow, Glenshee is fab, and you should hire skis before you get to the ski centre to avoid the long queues there.
