Nevis Range in short

  • Off-piste skiing
  • Good for beginners
  • Dry slope for unreliable snow days

Situated in the Scottish Highlands, Nevis Range (655m - 1221m) is a compact ski area that manages to offer something for every skier and snowboarder. Nevis Range boasts the only mountain gondola in Britain, which efficiently transports skiers and snowboarders up the slopes of Aonach Mòr mountain. Twelve lifts in total give access to a good variety of terrain for all skill levels, including a decent snow park. The mountain offers limited facilities but most skiers choose to stay at nearby Fort William.

Nevis Range is quite accessible and family-friendly, with nursery slopes and beginner areas. The Zone B beginners’ area offers wide runs suitable for learners, while the Snowgoose Bowl is targeted towards intermediate skiers. There is a ski school available for skiers of all levels with lessons as well in racing, freestyling and freeriding. When the snow cover is not suitable there is also a dry slope and two grooming machines. For more advanced skiers and snowboarders there is exciting and challenging off-piste skiing in the Back Corries, including the Coire Dubh, the Summit Corrie and the Coire an Lochan.
