Ski Slopes (Artificial & Natural)
The map of Ski Slopes reveals the unique hub for Ski Slopes in the UK. The Firpark Ski Slope features a state-of-the-art plough that enables the same direction racing over one meter deep in the snow. Unlike actual snow, Firpark's artificial snow allows the same direction racing because conservation of the grooves is not compromised by physical loss caused by melting water. Skiers and boarders may find the experience as realistic as real snow and appreciate the coloured signals given by marker poles to help with precision turning on the sloping surface. The Firpark Ski Slope is the only dry ski slope in Scotland capable of hosting an International competition, with multiple events in the World Slalom Ski Championships held there in recent years. The Firpark Ski Slope is unique in that it can be set up for slalom skiing.
Glencoe Ski Slope also hosts multi-activity events. The ski resort Glencoe Mountain is located in the Highlands (United Kingdom, Scotland).

Glenshee ski slopes are great, but all visitors must adhere to the Highmark code for using Scotland's winter mountain playgrounds. The Glenshee Mountain Bike Park is situated on the slopes of Glenshee. The largest biking area, the Corvie track, has its starting point beside the Highmark Lodge at the top of the Cairnwell Chairlift. Diski is a popular location for ski touring, and the summit of Ben Lui can be reached from here, a distance of roughly 22 miles. The Glenshee multi-user trail is now available for all multi-user groups. The three-day trial from south to north and the shuttle tracks from Glen Dochart and Aberdeenshire have been carefully designed to cater to all users, including snowmobilers, e-bikers, horse riders, and walkers.
Knockhatch Dry Ski Slope is the only ski slope at Glenshee where you can downhill or snowboard. Off to the side of the main driveway, this natural make-shift slope resembles a giant grass snake with no lift pass required. The Ski Centre also offers ski lessons for all ages and abilities. If you prefer to get around by other means, there is a range of easy mountain biking trails, 4 MTB routes, and three climbing routes available too. Adrenaline junkies can test their skills with an hour session of archery with Glen Dochart Mountaineering.
