Nevis Range offers the highest skiing in Scotland , with a great record for good snow-conditions running late into the season. Situated in the shadow of Ben Nevis , the pistes have a stunning backdrop with some of the most spectacular views that any of the Scottish Ski Areas have to offer!
Nevis Range is open 7 days a week from 09.00 and 08.30 at weekends and holidays, until 16.00, weather permitting. The season generally runs from December to May, however we must stress that the weather in Scotland is unpredictable with the winter snowfall varying greatly in recent years. We cannot guarantee or predict that there will be snow on a certain date, as much as we would like to!!
Lifts and Runs
There are 12 lifts in total, including Scotland 's only mountain gondola, which transports you effortlessly in just twelve minutes from the car park to 2150ft, where you will find the Snowgoose Mountain Restaurant and the ski area itself. With an uplift capacity of 9,600 per hour you can expect minimal lift queues.
The beginner's area is literally a stone throw away from the top station, with a variety of easy green and blue runs for you to gain your confidence and skills on! The runs are predominately wide and open with some challenging blue and red runs in the main Snowgoose bowl for intermediates and extensive off-piste black and red runs for the more experienced.
