Snowsports Season Has Landed
Last week brought the first substantial snowfall of the season, and that can only mean one thing: Hilton Coylumbridge has officially donned its winter cloak as the top snowsports resort in Aviemore. We’re just a few minutes’ drive from Aviemore train station, so whether you have your snow-loving critters in tow or you’re making the journey from the Central Belt with a pal on the locomotive, we’ll be there to welcome you as soon as you set foot in Aviemore.
Experience Aviemore’s Ski Resort
CairnGorm Mountain ski resort needs no introduction – the undisputed centre of snowsports in Scotland has a multitude of activities for you and all the family to engage in. Enjoy spectacular views of the Cairngorms National Park atop the UK’s highest funicular railway and experience the goodness of the snow school, with a selection of packages including all you need to get a headstart on the piste.
New to skiing? Boost your confidence with a lesson on the dry slopes at the School of Snowsports, located on the hotel grounds. You can also hire snowboards and sledges from the school, before heading off to enjoy your day in the snow.
Get Fitted in Your Snowsports Gear
If this is your first time attempting snowsports or you’re missing an important piece of kit and have no time to acquire it beforehand, you can complete your ski outfit at CairnGorm Mountain ski resort. Shop for a cool ski helmet or a snug pair of salopettes to see you through an intensive day of powder-powered fun. You can also store your gear and equipment in our complimentary Ski & Board Store in the hotel grounds.
Master the Art of Skiing and Snowboarding
Offering group lessons and private lessons, CairnGorm Mountain’s snow school is where you can make the leap from total beginner to a competent skier or snowboarder, or amp up your intermediate skills to an advanced level. You can opt to join a group and make some friends while you learn to navigate your equipment and the terrain, or request a personal instructor focused entirely on you. With years of experience helping clients from all walks of life achieve their snowsports mojo and accreditation from national training bodies, you’ll be in safe hands.
Make the Cairngorms Your Playground
The highest summit of the Cairngorms will frame your meandering on the slopes and provide a dramatic backdrop to your skiing and snowboarding pursuits. With ample space and a range of runs of varying difficulty, amateurs and pros can tackle the mountain comfortably. Find out everything you need to know before hitting the slopes with our snowports guide, full of tips for a successful snow day.
As vital a component of the snowsports experience as the snow itself, après-ski is the post-piste lounging, food, drink and entertainment that serves as a complement to the hours of gruelling practice on the slopes. Since we’re a stone’s throw away from the ski resort, we’re the natural choice for après-ski fun and merriment in Aviemore. The Woodshed Bar, with rustic ambience, live entertainment and family-friendly menu makes it a warm and approachable tavern to retreat into after a satisfying round of snowsports.
