:: CairnGorm Mountain Official Report

Last Update 21.19hrs on Monday 5th May 2014

CairnGorm is now closed for the 2014 Snowsports Season. The Funicular is open daily weather permitting, but there is no exit from the Top Station except on Ranger guided walks and bike descents.

There is still snow but you have to do the leg work now. There is still 2/3rds of Coire Cas, but if you are hiking or touring the main attraction is the Ciste Gully, there is still a continuos run from the top of the Ptarmigan Bowl, through the Ciste Bowl and the Ciste Gully to boardwalk level offering up 1500ft vertical descent.

Ptarmigan Terrain Park

The Park has one large kicker with a large and medium take off, there are several ramps from box features and the Half Pipe is still standing in the Marquis Wells, but it's a bit rough as it's not been reshaped recently - but saw some action on Monday.
