This is something that Iain at Car Hire Edinburgh Airport and Ricky located at Car Hire Glasgow Airport need to be aware of to keep all busy over the winter months in future, as it would be fantastic to make Scotland a top winter sport holiday destination.
It may not be the most well known destination for those who love to get out on the snow slopes, but thanks to a five year £6.2 million investment this could be about to change.
This investment is planned for Cairngorm Ski Centre which is currently the UK’s number one snow sports hub with 120,000 visitors annually. With the money aimed at elevating it to be a serious contender with the other international destinations, such as the French Alps or Whistler in Canada.
The aim is to become the adventure capital of Europe with CEO of Natural Retreats Matt Spence, who is the holiday company behind the project saying, “We want Cairngorm Mountain to compete with Mount Blanc and Chamonix.”
Although there are a couple of obstacles that may make it hard, with the size of the mountain and the weather being issues. It will if nothing else be great for British snowboarding if the people behind it are serious about it all.
