CairnGorm Mountain

CairnGorm Mountain near Aviemore is the best known of the ski and snowboard areas in the National Park.  It is also the highest and holds the snow well throughout the season.  There is lots of variety at CairnGorm Mountain and the terrain park’s, kickers and rails have attracted some of Britain’s best snowboarders and skiers to the area. 

2019 brings a new snow factory to Cairngorm Mountain to provide base station level skiing for beginners accessed with a rope tow. The snow created will also help provide access from the lower slopes to the mid station for the upper lifts.

Skiing, terrain park, snowboarding and sledging are all available subject to conditions. There are over 30km of ski runs and a fully maintained snow board fun park, suitable for all levels from beginner to expert. Cross Country, telemark, ski touring and ski mountaineering are also available from specialist operators. There is a recognised ski school that operates on site and Disability Snowsports UK also offer lessons for those with special needs.

Glenmore Forest, at the foot of CairnGorm Mountain, is perfect for cross county skiing. Glenmore Shop and Ski Hire now use a piste machine to cut cross country tracks, making it an even more enjoyable experience.
