@PavittHazel Thanks Hazel, great ideas.
Thanks to everyone who came along to our Q&A session last night in a very hot Cairngorm Hotel, we really appreciate it.
Please find a link to the presentation below, we will be publishing a summary of the event in the near future and will update this page when it is complete.
Aviemore and Glenmore Community Trust (AGCT) have today Thursday 18th April, welcomed a funding package of over £90,000 from Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) to support their development of detailed plans for community ownership of the Cairngorm Mountain Ski Resort, one of Scotland’s leading visitor attractions and outdoor adventure playgrounds. The funding will support two roles initially, a Project Manager and Administrative Officer based locally, with further scope to grow the team.
The funding boost for the trust comes on the back of extensive coordination and discussions with HIE following the previous operator, Cairngorm Mountain Limited, entering administration at the end of 2018.
"Out of adversity comes opportunity, the current situation at Cairngorm represents a unique opportunity to create something very special."
On 8th February 2019 Cameron McNeish published an article entitled “The Long Walk-in"[i], referencing the Aviemore and Glenmore Community Trust and raising many questions about the viability and future direction of Cairngorm Mountain as a ski resort and summer attraction. The trust welcomes debate over the future of the estate, and we felt it necessary to respond to some of Cameron's points.
