CairnGorm Mountain is the best-known resort, with 11 lifts and 30km of runs. The small town of Aviemore is the main base (with a shuttle-bus to the slopes). Eateries include the Winking Owl, a 'modern gastro-pub'. The slopes are accessed by a funicular from the main car park up to Ptarmigan at 1100m. There's a 'short but impressive' terrain park.
