Important Car Parking Information

This entry was posted in News on December 15th, 2020.

Climbers, Hill Walkers and Ski Tourers.

With the mountain opening for snow sports at the weekend we are expecting a very busy festive period here at Cairngorm. Our COVID safety information will be going live on the website tomorrow which will include all the details regarding your journey as a customer this season.

Due to the restrictions of the pandemic, we unfortunately will not be able to operate a shuttle bus service from the Ciste car park this year. Therefore, once our top car park is full, we will not be able to take any more customers, this includes season pass holders. To assist with monitoring the number of visitors to the resort we are asking that all hill walkers and climbers accessing the Northern Corries and ski tourers not using our facilities please use the lower level of the main Cas car park. This will allow our car parking attendants to relay accurate information on customer numbers to the technical operations team so that we can manage capacity and ensure we can accommodate the expectations of all those who are planning to enjoy the Cairngorms this winter.

During busy periods we encourage you to use alternative car parks and mountain access routes such as the Ciste ridge to the summit, the Sugarbowl and Glenmore Forest Park.
