Lecht Ski Centre

The Lecht Ski Centre is one of the five principal ski centres in Scotland. Located on the Cock Bridge to Tomintoul road (A939) on the border of Moray and Aberdeenshire, the ski-lodge and ancillary buildings sit at an altitude of 640m (2090 feet) while the pistes extend as high as the summit of Beinn a' Chruinnich (778m / 2552 feet). Opened in 1977, it is an all-year resort providing twenty ski runs in the winter, from seven green (easy) runs up to a solitary black (very difficult) run, together with a tubing runs and a permanent snowboarding park. In the summer there are go-karts, quad bikes and a challenging series of mountain-bike trails, as well as summer skiing and snowboarding on a 200m (219 yard) dry slope.

The centre was rebranded Lecht 2090, reflecting its altitude, following a £0.5 million upgrading of its facilities in 2001.
