England and Scotland may not be the first destinations you think of when considering ski destinations around the world, there are plenty of ski resorts these British countries. So what are some of the best ski resorts in England and Scotland?
Yad Mos, the Pennines, Cumbria
Yad Moss features the longest single ski lift in England, and is found in the “heart” of Cumbria. Considered an ideal introduction to skiing in England as the runs are not particularly steep, it is still recommended that you get there early. It is also recommended that you bring a shovel to dig out a parking space!
Avon Ski and Action Centre
Located in a woodland setting near Mendip Hills, the Avon Ski and Action Centre is not unlike a “genuine alpine resort” with tons of activities in addition to skiing, including tobogganing, rifle shooting, archery, rock climbing, and mountain boarding. There is also a bar that offers panoramic views of England’s Bristol Channel.
Microlodges at Glencoe
Camp at Glencoe, Scotland’s year-round campsite if you want to prove you’re as tough as the locals, or stay at the Glencoe Mountain Resort. The resort’s microlodges have been likened to “gypsy caverns.”
Avoid standing for up to an hour to purchase a lift ticket at this Scottish ski destination by stopping at the Glenmore Shop, located along the shores of Loch Morlich, to get your tickets. Purchasing a ticket at the shop means you’ll find yourself in deep powder that much faster!
