Scottish Skiing In June, Hopefully. (01-Jun-10)

Scotland, June 1, 2010 - Cairngorm Mountain above Aviemore

Cairngorm Mountain above Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands has announced plans to open for the first weekend of June, next Saturday 5th/6th.

A fortnight later on June 21st Northern Scotland celebrates the start of summer with near-24 hour daylight, thanks to the region’s northerly latitude.

The ski area is enjoying a record breaking year approaching eight months of near continual operation (all closures due to too much snow, extreme weather or more recently too few visitors, rather than any lack of snow).

There was more fresh snow last week with temperatures hovering around zero at the top of the slopes.

The centre has been open at weekends through May and on English Bank Holiday May 31st.  The Ptarmigan lift is running and the train makes mid-station stops if it is possible to ski to the middle using the gunbarrel. The terrain park and the sledge park are open.

Opening hours are from 10am - 4pm and snowsports tickets will be available for the whole day or for 3 hour sessions.
