Cairngorm Races Cancelled / Training Sunday 26th February

The mild winter and lack of snow has continued to disrupt the season with the Cairngorm Open Race this coming weekend now being cancelled as per the posting below from Cairngorm Ski Club.

Further to the ongoing snow conditions and the snow loss that we have experienced over the last few weeks, I would like to confirm that this year’s race for 2017 is to be unfortunately cancelled.

This is, as I am sure you are aware, is a decision we would not like to have to make, however due to the lack of snow and also having to make the responsible decision for all participants, including based around FIS Regs, also including Health & Safety guidelines, such as a lack of snow depth, snow coverage and Piste conditions, along with giving all entrants enough advance notice, we need to ensure that we make a valued and informed decision that the race is to be cancelled.

With this event being cancelled and the lack of snow and a settled forecast we are looking to run training at Alford on Sunday evening. The exact times may be dependent on the number wishing to attend but it will be roughly 4.30-6.30pm (we will confirm the exact times and programme once we know training numbers).

The training sessions are priced at £6 per hour per trainee. We will amend all the ‘accounts’ at the end of the season and make refunds/request payments where necessary.

Please email to let us know if you would like to train on Sunday 26th.
