  • Take a thrilling ski trip in Scotland this winter

    2011-09-28

    It may be time to book ski vacations for the upcoming winter season. A great location to check out for ideal powdery conditions is Aviemore in Scotland. Travelers can discover a unique winter vacation in the Scottish mountains that provides beautiful backdrops for an array of winter activities.

    This summit lies outside the town of Cairngorm, which is far north of Edinburgh and Glasgow. For more than a century, skiers have been enjoying these trails, which became ever more popular in the 1960s after ski lifts were constructed, reports World Travel Guide.

    Besides skiing, guests may enjoy a local ale at The Winking Owl, or take a drive to nearby Loch Ness Lake and perhaps catch a glimpse of the legendary monster.

    According to The Daily Mail, Aviemore is fortunate enough to get a lot of natural snowfall throughout the season. Last year, they experienced many storms and accrued more than 40 inches of natural snow on some slopes. Travelers should be aware that cold weather can cause frostbite or other dangerous situations, so dressing accordingly can avoid these potentially harmful ailments.
