Scotland may not have the long runs of Europe or North America but on a clear day, with no wind, it is just you and the bare mountain and can be just as challenging. Forget the designer clothing, this is all about skiing and perfecting technique. Turn up at the carpark, but a ticket, hire some skiis, and go.
