Shortly before 10.30am on Friday 24th November CairnGorm Mountain Ltd staff entered the private property of the Scottish Ski Club without the Club's permission and took our webcams out of service - fulfilling a threat made by the General Manager in a phone call on Thursday afternoon.
We will not be bullied by the General Manger of CML, nor will we wavier in our belief that the future of CairnGorm Mountain would be substantially brighter in the hands of the community.
If this incident is reflective of Natural Retreats management style then we have considerable sympathy for the staff and it would help explain the worryingly high turnover of skilled and experienced staff since summer 2014.
It's time for change on CairnGorm Mountain and if Natural Retreats still believe they have the right person managing CML then it only confirms that Natural Retreats is part of the problem and is not nor never will be part of the solution.
Over the years Winterhighland has spent thousands of pounds to provide coverage and marketing that primarily benefits CairnGorm Mountain Ltd, we believe that a successful CairnGorm is a prerequisite to a thriving Scottish Snowsports scene and will restore the webcams to service asap and thank the Scottish Ski Club for their continued support.
