NH9905 : Cairngorm Ski Road

taken 55 years ago, near to White Lady Shieling [other Features], Highland, Great Britain

Cairngorm Ski Road
Cairngorm Ski Road
When the original chairlift and Coire Cas T-bar were built, the only way from the car park was a 20-minute walk up the rough road from the car park, carrying one's skis of course. Unless, like the two ski instructors in scarlet jackets in the foreground, you were allowed to leave your skis in the Shieling. 1964 was a year of very poor snow cover, as you can tell from the almost complete absence of white patches in this rather grainy scan from a transparency.
