It is clear since the funicular was built in 2001 that making it a success became priority
The problem with that is that Snowsports keep the Funicular afloat, not the other way about as the two previous CEOs of CML liked skiers to believe. That has become abundantly clear under NAIL because they have not been afraid to show up the Funicular for what it is, it helps when they get the begging bowl out.
There has been substantial personal changes in CML, including a complete replacement of top management, yet the same agenda and attitude remain, it is there for logical to conclude that HIE is the problem, HIE is driving the agenda.
CML needs to be removed from CairnGorm Mountain, but not as much as HIE needs removed. At least the Scottish Government realise HIE is a problem in many situations not the solution. People used to talk about a bonfire of the quangos, HIE needs to be on the top of the the pyre.
