The 457m is measured from the base of the Dink Dink to summit of the Glas Maol. Like the theoretical 2000ft descent to the base of the Carpark T-bar on the Cas side of CairnGorm, it can only be achieved by hoofing to the actual summit.


That's still not 457m, Glas Maol is 1068m at the top, The Dink Dink base is 641m, that gives you 427m, so still 30m short, although that does make me wonder if the claimed vertical is based on both an uncorrected historical typo and walking.


whatever it's based on.....it's pish.

Indeed it is a grand big shed and will adequately provide for its intended use and more.
Great to see Glencoe Ski Centre continuing to invest and build on its future.
Looking forward very much to another fruitful season at the Coe.

I guess Ops420 and OpsC11H15NO2 got put under too much pressure fae ops007 and co, so walked. Then opsc2h5oh got involved and it probably turned intae a big fight..

The main festival was at the Badaguish Outdoor Centre in Glenmore where there is a big open sided barn type structure - not dissimilar to what the Glencoe Piste Basher garage is now before the walls go up!

There was camping and some accommodation at Badaguish, plus obviously the Glenmore Campsite and shuttle buses to/from Aviemore. There was some limited music and stuff on the hill, but without even the Cas Bar it was a bit odd the hill element. You have a bus tour of grannies in the Storehouse drinking tea and a DJ on the decks with a massive sound system blasting out hard techno! tongue sticking out smiley
