Owner description: NEVIS RANGE Mountain Experience is in the heart of the Highlands of Scotland, 7 miles north of Fort William. The mountain gondola will transport you to 650m on Aonach Mor where you'll find the Snowgoose restaurant & bar with awesome views, mountain trails, kids play area, and the Mountain discovery Centre (summer only). In the winter, we're open for sledging, skiing and boarding. There's biking for all in Leanachan forest, plus bike wash, bike hire and a skills park. The NEVIS downhill track (with gondola uplift) hosts the Mountian Bike World Cup each year and there's the new red Route opening in summer 2009. We hope you love it as much as we do!

“overlooking Fort William”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

The experience is excellent as the gondola takes you up the mountain for a fantastic view of Fort William and the surrounding areas. The top location has a restaurant and many winter activities that all family members may enjoy.

“Great to be able to snowboard outdoors in the UK!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We were quite lucky to get a break in the weather, but there was good snow overnight and quite a few lifts open despite forecasts of high winds and poor visibility (apparently NW winds don't affect them so much). It was nice to be able to get a proper gondola up from ground level to the main lift station as it would have been a cold 15 mins on a chair lift. At the main station there was a nice restaurant and bar, and access to the higher levels via a chair. Staff were all friendly and helpful, even though it was New Years Day and there were probably a few sore heads around! The rest of the lifts on the mountain were mainly buttons or t-bars, which are a bit of a pain for snowboarders, but they were modern and well maintained so fairly easy to use. Snow on the pistes had been well groomed and there was some good off-piste to be had as well. Arriving back at the bar at the end of the day we were pleased to be met by the smell of hot mulled wine - you could almost believe you were in the alps! Overall I was impressed that you can get this quality of facilities in the UK - it's a tiny resort compared to those in Europe, but the quality of the facilities would not be out of place in some of the major European resorts.
