Glencoe Will Open Weekends
Wednesday, 17 December 2003





Glenshee Chairlift Company have announced they have overturned their decision last month to 'mothball' Glencoe ski centre this winter and have decided that their ski centre at Glencoe will now open for weekend skiing as soon as suitable snow conditions prevail.

"This commitment to open at weekends has been made possible due to the outstanding public support we have received from the local community and the Scottish skiing public at large since the recent announcement to mothball the centre." said Executive Chairman Hamish Somerville.

"In particular Glenshee Chairlift Company would like to thank the Glencoe staff, Glencoe ski patrollers and the Glencoe Ski Club coordinated as a group by Bobby Williamson. Without their commitment and goodwill even this limited opening may not have been possible." Mr Somerville continued.

Glencoe Ski Centre has received support from Lochaber Enterprise and The Highland Council. Discussions continue with these bodies and other interested parties through which the company hope to create a framework that will ensure the long term well being of Scotland's oldest ski centre.

Glencoe Ski Centre season tickets are now available for 180 and due to the limited operation of the centre the ticket will also be valid at Glenshee Ski Centre.
