Cairngorm can be amazing, but it is rarely so. It is often very windy and snow conditions are unreliable. Beautiful location with some funs routes and a decent terrain park when it is open. Lift pass prices are a bit on the high side (£21.50/day for a student), especially when the management insist on charging full price even if the funicular is the only lift open due to high winds.
Lady V reviews CAIRNGORMS SCOTLAND
Sun 20 June 2004 by Lady VMY MY MY how the funicular railway has ruined the Cairngorms! Average of an hour waiting to get on the darned train thing and then another 10 minutes (it stops to pick up/drop off in the midlle) to get to the top of the mountain. PANTS! Althought the old 2-man chair sometimes had to be stopped for the high winds, it didn't happen that often and at least the q was always moving - no hanging abouut in the station for an hour. And how thay can say that the railway looks better and 'blends in' with the environment better I don't know - it's a monstrosity. The prices for food up the mountain too is awful - a soggy microwaved sausage on a rank roll and a cup of lukewarm coffee will set you back nearly four quid. The boarding in parts is good tho esp the coire caste - when there is enuf snow - if only those darned skiers would go away!!! (only kidding - luv y'alll really)
