What's in this Area?
The North Shoulder is a little bit more mellow, and is often the backup option for people heading up there. You ski almost along the ridge on the north side, back down towards the pumphouse basin. The north shoulder is generally a little bit sheltered and the snow is a little colder, but it is also windblown.[more]
Scotland's winter mountains provide many and varied backcountry routes. Whilst somewhat lacking in vertical it more than makes up for that in variety and the wild nature of both the locations and the weather!
How to Get There
Scotland is situated at the top end of the UK and is readily accessible by road, rail or airport (when not threatened by volcanic ash).
