CairnGorm Mountain kicks of 50th Season

The train took the strain to notch up my 13th consecutive month of snow sliding on CairnGorm Mountain on Saturday as CML kicked off their 50th Season.

The 23rd of December 2011 will mark the 50th anniversary of the inauguration of the White Lady Chairlift and the 10th anniversary of the Funicular which replaced the Cairngorm Chairlift.

While the chairs of the White Lady live on all over the country and beyond, there still is a 2 stage Chairlift on the ‘Gorm and perhaps the most fitting way to mark the 50th anniversary and the start of the next half century on the ‘Gorm is that once again skiers can ride up the mountain to herald the start  the 51st Season on the Coire na Ciste and West Wall Chairlifts.
