History of Starting the Lecht

The idea to develop the area was started by James McIntosh, teaming up with Pieter du Pon during their combined time in the Fleet Air Arm and a plan was hatched to develop the Lecht.  The only thing at the Lecht before 1977 was a layby for 3 cars at the cattle grid.  the ability to attract and hold snow was turned into the adventure that is now the Lecht.  The company was formed in December 1977 along with Ronnie Winram and Professor Jim Petrie.

The Lecht has always expanded on a modular basis, reinvesting all the generated funds and now has a car park with a capacity for over 800 cars and uplift capcity of over 10,000 skiers per hour.  A new building was built in 2004 which houses all the facilities under one roof.  in the summer there is mountain biking
