Composed of largely parallel roadside drag lifts, the Lecht has also invested in snow making technology in recent seasons, paying dividends in snow cover through unpredictable Scottish winter weather. It also offers a range of alternatives to skiing and boarding and opened a new £1m base lodge for the 2004-5 season. The nearest hotel is in Corgarff.
The Lecht was one of the first areas in Scotland to offer snowboard instruction and has subsequently hosted numerous competitions. Its fun park is well equipped - it has table tops, log slides, gap jumps and a full-length half-pipe so freestyle facilities are excellent.
The resort offers plenty of varied terrain for boards with the Buzzard and Falcon runs offering challenging terrain and the Harrier black run testing even the most experienced rider.
