Snowsports Opening 

We are going to be starting the Snowfactory on Monday 28 October 2019 and hope to secure support from the local schools, using children to help us with our launch at Cairngorm Mountain.  Our Snowsports Festival Launch will be Saturday 7 December 2019 & if we don’t have any natural snow then we will have a beginner area and hopefully the lower car park tow operating. We hope to work with the Cairngorm Mountain trust to help us have a community event for the launch. Keep an eye out on our web site and Facebook page for regular operations updates and news of all the events and activities we have planned at Cairngorm Mountain for the forthcoming season. 

Ski and Snowboard at Cairngorm Mountain

Cairngorm Mountain has been offering snowsports for over 50 years. We offer 30km of ski runs, 11 lifts, a fully maintained freestyle park. The snowsports season typically runs from December through until April, but this varies from year to year depending on weather. You don’t have to have your own ski or snowboard equipment either, because you can hire everything you need with us.

Please note the funicular is presently not operating

From beginners to experts

Experts and intermediates alike will feel right at home on our classic black and red runs, whilst beginners will love the snow sure ‘top basin’ area which provide long green beginner runs perfect for building your skills and confidence! There’s nothing quite like the first time tackling Cairngorm from the top to base and getting that accomplished feeling.


Discover the runs, lifts and tows here at Cairngorm Mountain, to plan your day on the slopes in advance.
