ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
This three day trip consists of skiing with your British Backcountry mountain guide in your group with fellow Freshtrackers, who are at the same skiing standard. If you are unsure of your level please see our Ski Profile Page. Cairngorm is perhaps the best known resort in Scotland, and lies amongst some of Scotland’s highest (and coldest) mountains. The skiing is situated on the upper mountain mainly, which is normally accessed by the tram system (funicular) which runs from the car park. Its northerly facing aspect means it has the best of the snow in the area, though this can cause the access road and funicular to become blocked.
Your 4 nights will be spent at the 3* Rowan Tree Country Hotel, on a half board basis (breakfast and dinner) with twin sharing accommodation.
This is not included in the package. Please contact our Freshtracks Team on 020 8410 2022 for further information and recommendations.
Below the ski centre there are also the UK's only groomed cross country ski trails (snow cover permitting) at Glenmore lodge. The town of Aviemore with plenty of hotels, places to eat and drink and leisure facilities, is around 25 minutes west by car or bus and has rail links to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth, Inverness and a sleeper service to London Euston.
You’ll be entitled to ski touring equipment hire as part of the package, where you will be helped by the Ski Club Rep in resort.
