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
