Go off piste with the Caledonian Sleeper Published: Wednesday, 24 February 2016 10:21

Snow lovers need look no further than Scotland for late season powder as the Caledonian Sleeper invites guests to get on track with the latest family friendly offerings from CairnGorm Mountain.

The Caledonian Sleeper is partnering with travel specialists Natural Retreats, to promote a marketing partnership with the aim of luring families in London and the South East up to Scotland for a ski break to enjoy the fantastic late season snow conditions.

Ryan Flaherty, Guest Experience Director at the Caledonian Sleeper, said: “With regular services from the centre of London to the heart of Aviemore, travelling on the Sleeper is a magical adventure for children.

“Families can leave on Friday night for a weekend break to the slopes and arrive back on Monday morning, in time for work – refreshed and revitalised by a weekend away. It’s also a lot less stressful than the airport experience with no need to travel to the airport and queue for security – just turn up and get on board. You can take adjoining rooms to ensure the family is together and kids under the age of 12 eat free.”

Famed for its beauty and skiing heritage, Cairngorm Mountain is the UK’s most popular snowsports destination and has been attracting skiers for over 50 years. It has 30km of pisted ski runs, 11 lifts, a fully maintained freestyle park and its new on-site Snow School caters for everyone from beginners to experts – making it ideal for families with varying levels of ability.

Further investments this season, including mini-me Burton Riglet Snowboard equipment suitable even for under-fives and a new comfortable kids area near the base station, make the mountain even more attractive to families this season.

Janette Jansson, General Manager, CairnGorm Mountain said: “With exciting new upgrades and the launch of a new Snow School this season, Cairngorm offers an abundance of fun for all ages and abilities.

“The Caledonian Sleeper from London to Aviemore is a fantastic way for families to travel hassle free to the slopes – only a twenty minute drive from the Mountain. Families can teleport overnight from the hubbub of London to the Scottish Highlands and enjoy great conditions at a fraction of the price of a trip to the Alps.”
