The forecast gust speed for tomorrow may have an impact on the opening of the Car Park tow. We have a limited capacity for the small area of snow that we have available, more tickets may become available later - please check before travelling.
Limited learners area in operation with short section on the Car Park Tow and Snow badger Rope tow at the Base of the mountain.

There are no lower temperatures in the forecast for the coming days at Base Station level, so the thawing snow pack will continue.

Due to the limited learners area we advise all our guests to please contact Guest Services on 01479 861261 (hours of business 9am to 4.30pm) to check on our daily availability.

Cairngorm Team.
