CairnGorm Mountain 24th November 2006Conditions and forecast are marginal but CairnGorm Mountain is planning to open for skiing if at all possible this weekend (24/25th November).

Lifts will open for skiing from 0930-1530 (upper lifts closing 1500) on both Saturday and Sunday subject to wind speeds and weather. The mountain will be closed during the week for scheduled maintenance.

Lifts likely to be open are the Ciste T-bar, The M1 and the Funicular (again, all depending on conditions).

It is anticipated that many visitors will be season pass holders but additional tickets will be available at £16.50.

Please note that the Ticket Office is under reconstruction and the Base Station concourse area is currently occupied by the Winter market. Therefore, a temporary ticket office will be located either in the exit stairs area or the Ranger Base and entry to the railway via the exit stairs.

The Ptarmigan will be open for limited refreshments, the Ptarmigan shop and exhibition will be open.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE OTHER RESORTS ARE NOT OPENING THIS WEEKEND AND SO CAIRNGORM IS LIKELY TO BE VERY BUSY

Cairngorm, United Kingdom

“On a good day with full cover, Cairngorms can be a great days boarding - but don't expect alpine conditions and take your old rock-hopper if you value your base and edges! It can get extremely busy at the weekends.”
