Get Set for the Ski Season in Aviemore 2015/2016

Posted by Hilton Coylumbridge, November, 2015

Here at the Hilton Coylumbridge, we take enormous pleasure in creating the kinds of luxurious and indulgent pampering packages you simply won’t find anywhere else. But at the same time, we also understand that for many of our guests, holidays are more about adrenaline-charged thrills than revelling in the lap of luxury. 

Adventurous and energetic types will also find themselves spoilt for choice with what’s on offer right on the doorstep of the Hilton Coylumbridge. Along with year-round access to Scotland’s most incredible outdoor pursuits, we also happen to be just a short hop from arguably the UK finest winter sports opportunities!

Cairngorm Mountain Ski Centre

Once again, things are heating-up (or should that be cooling down?) for the 2015/2016 ski season here in Aviemore. Of the various winter sports opportunities in the area, skiing and snowboarding never fail to top the table for most visitors and locals alike. The ski season here generally tends to run from December to April, though as is the case with the Great British elements in general can be somewhat unpredictable. More often than not however, the conditions are pretty great from around 9am to 4pm, every day of the week.

In terms of what’s on offer, there’s a total of 30km of marked ski runs to try out, along with a genuinely fantastic snowboard park and a world of cross-country skiing routes to explore. The pistes vary in difficulty from blissfully easy to borderline terrifying, with 11 comfortable and efficient lifts, keeping the action moving even during peak hours. Not only this, but Disability Snowsports UK now has a base at Cairngorm Mountain, offering a professional tuition services for disabled guests.

Our own on-site School of Snowsports offers coaching and instructional courses for skiers at all levels – there’s even a dry ski slope in the hotel grounds! So no matter how advanced or otherwise your own abilities are, there’s no better place to take a keen step forward. There’s also the opportunity to reserve all of the kit you need in advance, which means no waiting in lines and more time spent enjoying the action. There’s also a well-stocked ski store in which you can buy a vast arsenal of winter sports essentials and accessories, plus we also offer a complimentary secure storage service for ski equipment – just to lighten the load a little further.

Seasonal Ski Breaks

It’s a genuinely exciting time for us here at the Hilton Coylumbridge as there’s nothing we love more than helping our guests organise spectacular seasonal ski breaks. Along with a genuine passion for all the incredible opportunities the area has to offer, we’re delighted to offer a range of seasonal deals and discounts throughout the winter season.

From Magical Christmas Breaks to the Hogmanay Celebration you’ll never forget and every excuse for a festive Party Night, we’ll stop at nothing to make your ski break to Scotland the trip of a lifetime.
