Just realised on rewatching the video that the Ptarmigan Tow is removed... Leaving just the Ciste T-bar for the Top Basin.
I noticed that too, but there was no 'removal graphic', unlike those used for all the other Cas draglifts. Just added to the lack of awareness/knowledge throughout the whole video of the reality of what skiing at CG is.
My favourite idiot line from the Exec summary document is in the middle of this:
"Existing surface lift tracks are problematic. They are difficult to ride and maintain and they rely on proper snow coverage...."
"They also take up space that could be used for skiing."
Followed by "Snow fencing is crucial to operations at Cairngorm and the system should be used and upgraded as necessary to consistently provide snow on the slopes and reduce snow drifting."
They have no idea what they're talking about.
I'm glad of the proposed investment but as others have said, this needs no more HIE involvement and CG can't afford a repeat of the disastrous investment in the Funicular. With that amount of money onoffer, there's a real opportunity here to do something that would be of long-standing value, I'd be in favour of the Glenmore gondola option.
