The base of the snow sports area is accessed by the UK’s only mountain gondola taking visitors from the car park just above sea level to 650 metres (2,150 feet). The beginner’s area is literally a stone’s throw away from the Snowgoose restaurant at the top station, with a variety of easy green and blue graded runs. Further up the mountain is an extensive network of red and black runs, as well as the acclaimed Boardwise terrain park. An artificial slope also provides skiing opportunities when snow is lean.
Equipment hire and information on lessons and snow report is available from www.nevisrange.co.uk.
