Visitor Reviews of Cairngorm

Chris from United Kingdom writes:

Just a quick note of thanks to all the Staff at Cairngorm.
Went on May day (best snow of the season) and had a nasty accident on my first run: dislocated shoulder and 2 fractures.
I have nothing but praise for all the staff who helped me and my wife, very professional, very quick, very positive. Colin and his staff really could'nt have done more to help, even an offer of gas and air for the pain. Arranged x-rays at Aviemore health centre.
The only down side was when the Doc told me I would'nt be back on the mountain next day. Oh well, not long till next season.
To everyone else go and enjoy the fantastic spring snow.
