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

Our History

Home to skiers as early as the late 1890’s in Coire Cas, Cairn Gorm has long been synonymous with winter snow-sports.

During the 1950’s the Cairngorm Sports Development Fund was set up to try and establish commercial skiing, and ever since has welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors to its slopes.

Since the early 1960s, the nearby village of Aviemore, sitting on the A9 and Inverness to Edinburgh/Glasgow railway, has grown significantly as a tourism destination, with spectacular scenery and incredible adventure on the doorstep. It was hailed as the UK’s first ski resort offering a central hub for snow-sports enthusiasts to come and experience the wilds of the Cairngorms. Today, the incredible natural surroundings have made way for a disproportionate number of Olympic athletes in relation to the area’s population – not surprising when you consider the epic runs and spectacular terrain available for all to enjoy!
