Description:
Description:
The Authority wishes to appoint an operator for the Cairngorm Mountain Resort including its funicular railway and operating facilities. The contract to be awarded pursuant to this may be based on a services concession arrangement although the precise contractual and financial model and related terms and conditions will be established via the competitive dialogue procedure. It should be noted that the Authority wishes to allow for maximum flexibility in relation to the contract and during the competitive dialogue procedure, the Authority will seek innovative solutions to any contract for services. This will include management of all snowsports related commercial activity, management of all year-round tourism operations, maintenance of assets on Cairngorm Mountain, retail/equipment hire, management of the UK's highest altitude restaurant and additional catering and all hard FM related to skier uplift infrastructure and Scotland's only funicular railway.
In particular, the Authority is looking for an operator to drive the snowsports business, while providing a clear strategy for service diversification to wider non-snowsports activity. This would allow more consistent year round cashflows, as well as year on year profitability, which is currently highly dependent on available skier days.
While the Authority remains committed to investing in the asset base of the Cairngorm Mountain Resort, the potential operator would be required to provide capital investment to support their business model. Consequently bidders will be expected to demonstrate a credible access to finance.
