The Base Station is the main information point and ticket office for snowsports during the winter season.
The ticket office for skiers and snowboarders is located in the Base Station and open during the winter season. It is also where you can pick up your lift passes before heading out onto the slopes. It is essential that you book your lift passes in advance as we cannot guarantee that there will be availability on the day.
Throughout the year our mountain ranger service operate out of the base station. They are on hand to offer guidance to visitors exploring the Cairngorms providing essential weather information and avalanche forecasts. A visit to the Ranger Base before heading out could save your life in the event of an emergency.
Our Ski Patrol team are based in the Aonach Room over the winter season.
Home to all the essential amenities for you visit, the Day Lodge offers food, drink and shopping.

On level 2 is the Cairngorm Café serving a wide choice of hot and cold dishes, drinks and more. You’ll also find the main public toilets here too.
