Ready, Steady, Snow!
Not far from the lively village of Aviemore in Scotland, Natural Retreats CairnGorm Mountain is easily accessible from across the UK.
In celebration of the new ski season Natural Retreats recently held a successful launch of its Snow School at CairnGorm Mountain with Burton Riglet snowboarding taster sessions in the ‘Burton Riglet Park’. The park was specially built for kids aged three to six years old and ski and snowboarding taster sessions and tobogganing also took place on a Snowflex® synthetic snowsports slope.
CairnGorm offers over 30km of pistes and facilities include the UK’s highest restaurant with a viewing terrace, the UK’s highest post box, the UK’s highest Starbucks, two shops, a mountain exhibition, snow parks in winter and disabled access throughout. CairnGorm offers plenty of fun for all ages and abilities.
With season passes for the mountain from only just £96 per child and £435 for adults, snowsports lovers need look no further than Scotland for fun in a stunning setting. And having recently seen the first snow falls and the launch a new Snow School, Natural Retreat’s CairnGorm Mountain is preparing to open for the upcoming ski season.
A Christmas market running throughout November was opened at the UK’s highest restaurant, the Ptarmigan, and was attended by the present-bearing guest of honour, Santa Claus.
Snow-revellers also reached the dizzy heights of 3,500ft via the funicular railway, which also hosted sing-alongs with Elsa and Anna from Frozen! Along with goodie bag giveaways and live coverage from legendary Scottish radio station MFR, the launch event certainly set the bar high for an exceptional season ahead.
Future development plans for Cairngorm include a full Olympic standard Snowflex® facility and new stunning lodge facilities.
