Full review

A group of us headed up on the last day of March and stayed overnight in one of the microlodges, these were cheap cheerful and got the job done! The next day the weather was fantastic, literally could not have asked for better conditions. The views on the chairlift and the mountain are absoloutely breath taking. The snow cover was great with all runs and lifts open and we had a fantastic day! Glencoe is great for the more experienced skiier/boarder and thos who like the freestyle effect of riding a pure mountain. The only complaints I have is the lifts are old and I mean old and the Eagles rest cafe is not as good as it should be (BUT it has been fully renovated for the 2013/14 season). I love Glencoe and will definitely be back again this season!
