On Monday 3rd May, Cairngorm Mountain in the Scottish highlands is offering free Ski Touring ‘Have a go’ sessions for snow sports ticket holders.
The sessions are being run in conjunction with Mountain Spirit and G2 and will start from 10.30 in the morning and 13.00 in the afternoon. Just turn up at the skiers’ exit at the Top Station and look out for G2. Places and equipment are limited so these will be run on a first come first served basis.
CairnGorm is still open for snow sports and will remain so at weekends through May, subject to conditions. The area is currently operating the Ptarmigan, Ciste, Cas, and M1 lifts along with the train.
Weekend snows ports from the 8th/9th May will take place from 10am – 4pm and tickets will be available for the whole day or for 3 hour sessions between 10am – 4pm.
The sledge park will be open every day up to and including 3rd May for non-skiers along with a snow castle building area outside the Ptarmigan top station. Guests should check at the ticket office that the park is open before buying your train ticket there then get your sledge ticket from the Shop at the Top.
Only the centre’s own mountain sledges can be used. It is not permitted to take your own sledges onto the Funicular and Sledge Park.
Special ski ticket prices will apply up to and including 3rd May are adult £20 day / £14 afternoon, senior/ student £14 day / £12.25 afternoon and juniors £12.25 day or part day.
Fresh snow is expected in the next few days.
