Visitor Reviews of Cairngorm

Fraser from United Kingdom writes:

Guys, cut 'Gorm'some slack here! They do their best for the conditions they get. Sure it's not guaranteed but when it's good it's awesome. Here are my tips if you're going up:

Car parks fill up quickly, especially at weekends or during school holidays. Get there a wee bit earlier if you want to be in the Cas (upper car park). Even better, car share with someone else, or take a regular bus from Aviemore (right outside train station).

Take cash for buying your ticket. There's a separate queue and it will make it a lot quicker.

The train getting blocked at tunnel mouths used to be a problem. However, they now have a heated door at the top tunnel entrance, so snow shouldn't lie here now. If there is snow blocking the bottom, then there should be enough to run a lift from the bottom, so take one of these!

The surface lifts take a lot of pressure off the train, allowing it to be used for beginners. You can take either the car park T-bar or Fiacaill ridge poma, and then the M1 poma (takes you to the top station) or the Cas T-bar (takes you to the bottom of traverse, and there are some nice greens and blues here.

The Ciste side of the mountain is good if the west wall poma is open, and this is where the most challenging terrain is, some off-piste too.

Things I would suggest to Cairngorm:

Get updates on earlier in the morning, although this is improving.

Get the Ciste Chairlifts running again! It would allow access directly from the Ciste (lower car park) to the bottom of the top bowl! It opens up a lot more terrain, and by not having chairs in use you are falling behind other ski resorts.

So if you're thinking about a trip up 'Gorm, then check the updates on their website or phone recorded message. When it's good, it's awesome. Some days will have more sketchy weather, and fewer runs but they try their best! Also be sure to check out their mini shred areas, these are great fun!
