Scottish Snow makes sure there are opportunities for our members to go skiing in Scotland during the winter season. There will be several weekend trips as well as day trips. This is what you can expect, depending on how much snow there is:
Day trips to Glencoe or Nevis Range are suitable for people of all skiing abilities who don’t mind getting up early. Whether they are organised depends on the weather conditions as well as minibus availability. These trips can take place during the week or at weekends and are often advertised at short notice. As GUSSC is proudly sponsored by Glencoe Mountain Range, ski passes are cheap, making these trips affordable for all members. Students needing equipment can hire it for free. It is a great way to meet other GUSSC members on the slopes or around a few too many pints in Glasgow in the evening when you get back from skiing.
Weekenders are for people who love a good ski and a good party.
Aviemore is somewhere GUSSC has been going to for years and has proved to be a popular destination for a weekend of Scottish skiing on the Cairngorm Mountain Range around Febuary/March. Members are driven there by minibus and spend the night in one of the town’s hostels after dancing the evening away in Scotland’s finest club, The Vault.
Fort William, near the Nevis Range, is another great place for a weekend away. With its infamous ‘Fight Club’ and several pubs, night entertainment is guaranteed.
Glencoe has recently become a destination of choice since the Glencoe Mountain Resort has also given GUSSC deals on the great Hobbit Huts. They are perfect for cosy parties after a day’s skiing.
All weekend trips are reasonably priced, accessible to any GUSSC member, and are a great way to make loads of new pals and let loose.
