Gorm Mountain is Britain's 6th highest mountain and lies 9 miles east
of Aviemore, just off the A9 to Inverness in the heart of the Cairngorms
The UK’s highest funicular railway takes
visitors on a spectacular journey from the Base Station at 635m (2083ft)
to the Ptarmigan Top Station 1097m (3598ft) above sea level and just
below the summit of Cairn Gorm at 1245m (4084ft) – Britain’s 6th Highest Mountain.
CairnGorm is Britain’s most popular winter sports destination with 11
ski lifts including the funicular railway and over 30km of pisted runs
suitable for beginners to experts. There is also a terrain/fun park for
freestyle enthusiasts and a sledging park for children and grown-up kids
In winter the Cairngorms offer some of the most
challenging ice climbing in the UK. Visitors can check out the
conditions at the Ranger Base and leave their route cards there.
Returning they can catch the down train to the Cas Bar’s welcoming log
In the months when we are not offering snowsports one of
the highlights when you visit here is to go walking in the area. The
Walk at the Top and the Guided Northern Corries Walk are accompanied by
an experienced guide.
The other facilities at CairnGorm
include the Shop @ the Top, Mountain Shop, Ptarmigan Restaurant and Cas
Bar, Ski Hire, Ski School, Mountain Ranger Service and Ranger Base, Wild
Mountain Garden, All Abilities Walking Trail and Camera Obscura.
