Kilted skiers set world record



The world record for the most kilted skiers and snowboarders to go down a piste has been set by more than 200 people on CairnGorm Mountain near Aviemore.

All involved, a total of 235, skied down in a line from the Ptarmigan Top Station on the mountain, with two pipers and a drummer leading the procession over the finish line.

Money raised from the event was given to a skiing school programme as well as to charity.

Scotland has not seen as a good a ski season since 2001, with snow expected to last up to as late as May.

Colin Kirkwood, a spokesperson for CairnGorm Mountain had this to say: “We’re delighted, it was a little cloudy overhead but it was a fantastic spectacle and people really enjoyed taking part.

“It was an impressive sight and we wanted to do something to celebrate the great ski season we’ve been having and do something which could involve the public.”
