If you don't own a car or a bike...??
Date Posted: 19.04hrs on Sat 6 Jan 07
Hello, Happy New Year

I would like to go skiing this winter but have no skis no boots no car no jacket etc.

Does anyone go up by bus or train??
Are there buses put on for skiers to access slopes from say Aviemore or Glenmore or nearest hostels?
Can I hire all the gear from the foot of the slopes?

caza,
To answer your questions in order yes,yes and yes smiling smiley
There is bus access to Cairngorm from Aviemore and full gear is available for hire.

Where are you based?

Cairngorm is not the only ski centre in Scotland - you may be able to get a lift from someone on here to Cairngorm or another resort - if you post on the "Lifts to the hills thread"

Thanks II

I am based in Hartlepool, it's rather flat..

Walked up Ben Nevis a few years ago and stayed at youth hostel there, is this one very convenient for skiers in Nevis range or where do you all stay?
(I once met a climber who camped on Cairngorm in February..)
