The Mountain Railway is currently closed. Season Passes now on sale.With our quietest time of year now upon us, and seeing a significant reduction in our visitor numbers, we have taken the decision to close our shop and café, until early December. Toilets for public use will still be available Wednesday to Sunday(closed Monday and Tuesday) in our Base Station from 9.00 am to 4.00pm. The technical team are currently finishing off the annual maintenance to our ski lifts, snow ploughs and piste machines, and Techno Alpin engineers have just been onsite, for a final check of our snow factory, which will be starting production next week. We look forward to reopening our facilities in early December and begin our Snowsports season on the 19th December. Thanks from the team at Cairngorm Mountain for all your support over the summer season

Ranger Service – Now Open

The Ranger Service has reopened, however the ranger base will remain closed. Please observe social distancing guidelines which will be available onsite.

Cairngorm Mountain Ranger Service is deployed and funded by Cairngorm Mountain (Scotland) Limited to provide stewardship of the Cairngorm Estate on behalf of Highlands and Islands Enterprise and to advise on the use and care of the Estate.

The Cairngorm Mountain Ranger Service operates from the Ranger Base at the car park at the Cairngorm Ski Area. The Ranger Service organises and carries out work on mountain paths radiating from the car park and leads guided walks in summer. A large part of the annual environmental monitoring by Cairngorm Mountain (Scotland) Limited, in relation to the mountain railway, is fieldwork carried out and reported by the Ranger Service.
