Skiing in kilts world record bid at CairnGorm Mountain

Skiers in kilts
The resort is looking for intermediate and advanced level skiers

A ski centre is to attempt to set the world record for the largest number of kilted skiers and snowboarders going down a piste at the same time.

CairnGorm Mountain, near Aviemore, hopes to find 600 people willing to wear kilts and go down in a line from the Ptarmigan Top Station.

Money raised from the event planned for 6 March will go to charity and a schools skiing programme.

The resort is looking for intermediate and advanced level skiers to take part.

Ian Whitaker, chief executive at CairnGorm Mountain, said the event would help to mark a busy winter season.

He said: "So far this year we have held two torchlight descents but the CairnGorm in Kilts world record attempt would be unique to Scotland and Scottish skiing."
