Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy The last pic is on the bottom half of Carn Aosda - the tow is on skier's left, just over the fence.

The run was just slightly steeper than Yad Moss wink

Oh Lordy! Terrible news about Cairngorm.

I'm actually moving up to Elgin (between Inverness/Aberdeen) and was hoping to get a fair bit of skiing done.

Does anyone have any advice now it seems that regular visits to Cairngorm are off the table?

Thanks!!

@jonnygoldsbrough, Cairngorm mightn't be a complete write-off.

Beyond that, depends on how far you want to drive. From Elgin you can still get to Nevis Range, Glenshee, and of course The Lecht without too much hassle.

Have you skied in Scotland before?

Yes, the Snow Factory arrived a couple of days ago, no idea about seasonal staff due to company going in to administration, there has been no updates on their website or Facebook recently but suggest you keep checking in case they start up again.

The crowdfunding never got anywhere near the total. Maybe that’s why they have some kind of lease deal with the Lecht.

I've had a bit of a skint year so can't afford the kit but I really want to do some touring as soon as it's feasible.
Films like that really whet the appetite.

@jonnygoldsbrough, I initially thought this was good but I was at the Snowfactor at Braehead last week, the snow was really poor so not sure if Mr Smiths offer is such a good idea if he can't keep an indoor slope in good condition.
@Canuck, They had the camera facing towards the carpark tow yesterday and you could see piles of snow, keep watching.

Cairngorm staggers from one crisis to another.

May be best to close it down.

Focus more cash and effort on the other stations nearby, like Glenshee.

Looks like most Scottish ski resorts will be closed or only ~10% open during the busy Xmas 2018 holiday season.

Looks like a disaster season on the horizon.
