This weekend

Hi all,

I'm visiting the Aviemore area this weekend with my boyfriend for snowboarding.

We're arriving Thursday (my birthday) and leaving Monday. We'll be up the mountian all day on the Friday Saturday and Sunday with any luck so I'm just wondering if there's anything happening in the evenings worth knowing about? Last time I was there was Feb last year - has there been any changes? Any new restaurants? Is the Skiing Doo still open?

Do you think we'll have a problem finding somewhere to eat on Valentine's night?

We're staying in a B&B in Carrbridge but we'll have a car.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Gemma

Lucky you! we're not going til June :(

Look at the previous post re Wedding Dinner - i put some restaurant suggestions in there. I would book in advance tho as it may be busy.

I don't think much has changed since last feb (unless is has since Nov - when we were last up!)

Don't forget the Mountain Cafe for Breakfast/lunch!! An absolute must :)

skiing doo is still open :)

have a great time :)
