Back country skiing in Scotland is growing in popularity. There’s a dedicated group of skiers who venture away from the piste to find wild turns well away from anyone else. The ski areas provide easy access to some brilliant lines that feel a world away from the piste. There’s also endless opportunity for those prepared to invest a few hours walking in to the snow, skinning up into a coire and booting up a gully in order to savour a few sweet turns on the way back down. You definitely earn your turns in Scotland!
