Après ski

In the 1960's, the nearby town of Aviemore was regarded as a hip place to hang out during the winter sports season.

In recent years, that buzz has returned to Aviemore, and these days it's a year-round destination for Great Outdoors fans of all abilities.

Further info

Aviemore and the surrounding area is a Mecca for outdoors enthusiasts of all levels.

From a relaxing round of golf on some of the loveliest parkland courses in Scotland, to a whitewater rafting or rock climbing adventure, it's all here. And all set against one of the finest scenic backdrops imaginable. To find out more check out the Visit Aviemore website.

About the centre

CairnGorm Mountain has a reputation as one of the most beautiful - and sometimes challenging - places to ski in the UK, as well as boasting Scotland's only funicular railway. It's also Scotland's most popular resort and is located just a short distance from the main A9 arterial route which runs between Perth and Inverness.    

Whether you're a skier or not, the ride on the train to the Ptarmigan Top Station is a unique experience with an opportunity to take in fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding area.

For non-skiers, the end of the journey offers a chance to visit Scotland's highest restaurant, shop, mountain exhibition and viewing terrace or go outside to watch ski-ing before returning to the base station by the train.

Walkers and climbers may descend on the funicular after walking up, but essential conservation guidelines prohibit their using the funicular for their initial ascent.

However, during the winter season there is an alternative way to descend the 400 vertical metres from the top station to the base station - on skis or a snowboard.

In fact there is a wide range of routes on offer, with the longest run running 3.3 kms. In total, 12 lifts including the funicular train service the resort, which includes seven green runs, six blue, eight red and one black piste.

The resort also has the added attractions of a terrain/fun park for freestyle fans (see piste maps (link above) for ski run grading information).
