Backcountry Touring

Snowsports touring (using skis or snow boards) is one of Scotland’s fastest growing mountain activities.  More people than ever are moving away from managed resorts and are skinning uphill and accessing more remote areas. 

Here at Cairngorm Mountain we welcome snowsports touring and are re-introducing a Touring Ticket for £10 to include two surface tows uplifts when we have sufficient snow.

Tickets can be purchased daily from the Cairngorm Mountain ticket desk. For more details, please get in touch with the team on 01479 861261 or email

For more details on touring, safety and the snowsports touring code, please take a look at Mountaineering Scotland’s leaflet on their web site:
