Full review

The Lecht makes a good fun day trip from Inverness or Aberdeen and is worth taking a day out for as part of a longer trip to north Scotland. The runs are quite short and quite similar across bare open hillside with no tree cover. Nearly all the lifts are old tow lifts although there is one slow old chairlift too. My little brother (aged 7) was lifted in to the air by the drag lifts and did a pefect 720 spin hanging off the rope before landing again! The Lecht can open with very little snow and does tend to open when other Scottish ski areas aren't. It was the first to open for winter 08-09 on Halloween 2008. The area got a new base lodge a few years ago so all the facilities like rentals, lift ticket and resataurant are all in one modrern building and you park right next to it so everything is very close and convenient. Prices are readsonable and the people friendly, the only problem was the rentals we got were really terrible, a real disgrace really, and it was hard to stand up with them as it was like trying to ski on pieces of soft rubber.
