Love it here, the team work so hard to het the slopes decent despite the challenging weather. Had a fab day 3/4 good slopes and runs okay most of the day. Any skiing better than none! Apart from that the parking, staff and amenities are great. No complaints at all. Thank you.

Firstly I don't ski...sorry ski persons....I have stopped here in the car with the family a number of times when holidaying at February half term. You can park your car on the large free car park and basically pick your sledging spot by the car park. On a recent trip when snow was at a minimum we used what was... More

There has been so little snow this year in the UK so they did well to have anything open in half term. The staff were efficient and friendly. I have skied at cairngorm too and think this would be super if all the lifts were open. I would take your own lunch and thermos though. The cafés are great mid... More

Took the kids here to try some skiing and absolutely loved it! The staff were super friendly - be it in the cafe, ticket booth, ski hire centre or shop, we were welcomed and helped at every turn. The snow has been a bit rubbish this year, but runs were still open. The kids spent the day on the beginner... More

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.
