Skiers flock for early sea­son tick­ets

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - LOCAL | NEWS -

Snows­ports en­thu­si­asts have snapped up early­bird passes for the 2018/19 sea­son at the CairnGorm Moun­tain in record time.

Ticket sales have al­most quadru­pled com­pared to fig­ures recorded in 2016, with the num­ber of sea­son tick­ets sold this year al­ready ex­ceed­ing 2017 fig­ures.

Janette Jans­son, gen­eral man­ager at CairnGorm Moun­tain, said: “We are ab­so­lutely de­lighted that con­sumer con­fi­dence in CairnGorm Moun­tain is so high.

“We had a great sea­son with snows­ports en­thu­si­asts en­joy­ing some fan­tas­tic con­di­tions from the end of 2017, right through un­til the end of April this year.

“It’s re­ally en­cour­ag­ing

“We are look­ing for­ward to launch­ing our new web­site”

that so many peo­ple have al­ready pur­chased sea­son tick­ets in anticipation of the com­ing win­ter sea­son. We op­er­ate an early bird sys­tem and it re­ally does save peo­ple money if they pur­chase sea­son tick­ets be­fore the end of the sum­mer.”

The ski cen­tre is ex­plor­ing tech­no­log­i­cal with a new web­site com­mis­sioned on the back of a suc­cess­ful CairnGorm Moun­tain mo­bile app, which prom­ises im­proved func­tion­al­ity.

Janette Jans­son said: “We are look­ing for­ward to launch­ing our new web­site, which is un­der­go­ing thor­ough test­ing at the mo­ment.

“The web­site will be much more user-friendly and the abil­ity to book in ad­vance and print tick­ets at the Day Lodge and base sta­tion should also mean that vis­i­tors can get out on the slopes much quicker.”

Prices of sea­son passes sit at £275 for adults, with the price in­creas­ing by £25 each month.
