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
We operate a professional full-time Ski Patrol, which main duties include Piste Safety, Piste Marking, Ticket Office Staff, alongside assistance in the event of any unlikely accidents.

10 FIS Rules For Conduct
Respect for others – A skier or snowboarder must behave in such a way that he does not endanger or prejudice others.
Control of speed and skiing or snowboarding – A skier or snowboarder must move in control. He must adapt his speed and manner of skiing or snowboarding to his personal ability and to the prevailing conditions of terrain, snow and weather as well as to the density of traffic.
Choice of route – A skier or snowboarder coming from behind must choose his route in such a way that he does not endanger skiers or snowboarders ahead.
Overtaking – A skier or snowboarder may overtake another skier or snowboarder above or below and to the right or to the left provided that he leaves enough space for the overtaken skier or snowboarder to make any voluntary or involuntary movement.
Entering, starting and moving upwards – A skier or snowboarder entering a marked run, starting again after stopping or moving upwards on the slopes must look up and down the slopes that he can do so without endangering himself or others.
Stopping on the slope – Unless absolutely necessary, a skier or snowboarder must avoid stopping on the slope in narrow places or where visibility is restricted. After a fall in such a place, a skier or snowboarder must move and clear of the slope as soon as possible.
Climbing and descending on foot – A skier or snowboarder either climbing or descending on foot must keep to the side of the slope.
Respect for signs and markings – A skier or snowboarder must respect all signs and markings.
Assistance – At accidents, every skier or snowboarder is duty bound to assist.
Identification – Every skier or snowboarder and witness, whether a responsible party or not, must exchange names and addresses following an accident.
