Overview

Cairngorm Mountain is the UK’s most popular ski area, home to Scotland's only funicular railway which takes passengers up to the country's highest restaurant, shop, mountain exhibition and viewing terrace. With a reputation for its beauty, CairnGorm Mountain was also voted Snowvole’s ‘most family friendly resort’ in 2013. There are 11 ski lifts at the resort, including the funicular railway, serving 11 green runs, 11 blue, 10 red and three black. The longest run stretches for around 3km from top to bottom. There are several freestyle setups scarred across the mountain that compliment the snowpoark at the top which is currently sponsored by Quicksilver and Roxy. Cairngorm is just under 10 miles east of the lively village of Aviemore, just off the main A9 route between Perth and Inverness. It can be reached by train from most parts of the UK, including an overnight sleeper train from London, or by flying to Inverness.
