Welcome to Cairngorm Mountain by Natural Retreats. We are delighted to officially take over operations at Cairngorm Mountain, marking the beginning of a 25 year long-term lease.
With a highly ambitious vision for the next 25 years, we’re aiming to elevate this incredible destination. The most remarkable natural landscape, located in one of the world’s most beautiful countries, Cairngorm Mountain provides the ultimate playground for mountain bikers, triathletes, skiers, hikers and snowboarders.
Natural Retreats strives to enable people to enjoy a way of life in the natural world, and we want to deliver world-class experiences at Cairngorm Mountain for everybody. We are big believers in access for all, and this remarkable landscape, thanks to the funicular, can be enjoyed by everyone, despite age or ability. The funicular was designed to strengthen the tourism sector, which is a vital part of the local economy in what is now the Cairngorms National Park. It enables snowsports enthusiasts to access the mountain in conditions which would have closed the chairlift, and provides summer visitors with an easy and enjoyable route into the heart of some of Scotland’s most beautiful scenery.
We will improve all aspects of the Resort – building a leading nursery slope for beginners who will enjoy world-class lessons. The current Day Lodge will be replaced with a Centre of Excellence for athletes, and it is from here that we will develop future gold medal winners. It will also provide a Centre of Activity for children and a Centre of Experience for all.
