Visitor Reviews of Cairngorm

Cameron from United Kingdom writes:

Would just like to say that the 2012/13 season is now open!
Was up on the opening weekend with the ski club and it was class. Bluebird conditions genuine powder and well groomed pistes. The new snow cannons are obviously doing their work. Please Cairngorm, work on getting a larger area open as the queues were quite bad (however, this is to be expected with great snow, brilliant weather and being the first weekend of the season).
If going to Cairngorm or any other of Scotland's 5 resorts then make sure to check the weather forecast and the snow conditions to stop you moaning on this site when you turn up out of the blue (or sleet) and don't have miles of alpine powder and sunshine.
Here is hoping that this season continues as it has begun.
