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!
