Cairngorm Mountain is the perfect mountain environment for learning to ski or snowboard. With the gentle slopes of the Ptarmigan bowl at the top, our dedicated beginner zone at the base and on-site equipment rental facilities, we have everything you will require to kick-start your snowsports journey.

Plan Your Learning Experience
