On the piste

A new world record has been set after 235 skiers and snowboarders took to the piste on CairnGorm Mountain, near Aviemore, Scotland.

What made the record significant was that all the participants were wearing kilts. They skied down in a line from the Ptarmigan Top Station on CairnGorm Mountain to claim the record. Money raised from the event will go to charity and a schools skiing programme.

The event was the first attempt to set a world record for kilted skiers and the participants were led across the finish line by two pipers and a drummer.
