CairnGorm Mountain Ltd are hosting a series of pre planning consultation days at the end of October and into November. These relate to the developing proposals for replacement of the Daylodge as part of Natural Retreats development plan.
There is more info on the MCofS website: [www.mcofs.org.uk
All the proposed developments are contained within Coire Cas and it looks as if Coire na Ciste does not feature in the future plans:
From what can be determined at present, the proposed budget of around £6m will be from public funds either in the form of a loan to NR or build and lease back to the operator.
Yet again millions of pounds of public money is set to be spent on CairnGorm Mountain, skiers and boarders need to make their voices heard, so investment made is the best interests of snowsport provision on the mountain (and thus in supporting a 12 month of the year tourism sector in Strathspey).
This is an opportunity to reverse the mountains decline and rejuvenate snowsports on CairnGorm, business as usual will be continued decline as other areas move forward and CairnGorm Mountain falls further behind. Alone out of Scotland's five commercial areas in lacking operational chairlifts, it can not credibly claim to still be Scotland's premier snowsports area.
Make your voices heard at the following open day.
Cairngorm Hotel, Aviemore:
•Mon 26th Oct 1pm to 9pm
•Tue 27th Oct 11.30am to 7pm
CairnGorm Mountain, Aonach Room (Base Station behind Ranger Base):
•Wed 28th Oct 11.30am to 7pm
Two dates in November were included in the documents send out but were erroneous and have not been confirmed.
