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!

“Scot Hols”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Beautiful day, went up on the gondola the views were spectacular. walked up to the view point and took plenty of photos. Wasnt busy so no problem looking round or queing. Back down on gondola and to the cafe for coffee. Asked for two macchiatta coffees, the lady there didnt have a clue how to make them. We ended up with two expressos with froth on top , no milk was added, at the cost of £3. 80. The lady should not have been left on her own when she didnt know how to do the coffee.

Hi - thanks for taking the time to post your review and we’re delighted to hear you enjoyed great weather with spectacular views. We’re sorry that we weren’t able to prepare your Macchiatto the way you like it. The catering team have been discussing how to make sure customers are not disappointed, and we feel that we need to tell customers more about how the coffee is prepared - especially for the less frequently requested coffees. We hope this will mean that customers get the coffee they expect in future! We look forward to welcoming you again to Nevis Range sometime soon.

We had 4 hours of lessons and ski and boot hire, we were out all day and had an amazing time. By the end of the day I could manage not to fall over. Haven't laughed so much in years!!
the instructor was very patient and we enjoyed the whole experience. just can't believe its the first time! Will go back very soon.

Thanks for posting. Great to hear you enjoyed your first time skiing, as well as your lessons with our Snowsports School. You certainly picked a great season to start learning - we've had more snow than ever before! Persevere, and you'll enjoy skiing for many years to come ... it's a great way to enjoy the outdoors, keep fit, have a laugh and meet some great people! Thanks.

“Snowboarding lessons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Had lessons today with an instructor Holly. She was great, very encouraging, friendly and very helpful and had us all boarding down slopes in 1hr. The staff in hire and tows were great also. Had a fantastic day thanks to the excellent staff and facilities.

“Even in challenging weather...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Daddy and 9yr old want to ski so we all catch a Gondola (£32 return pass for 2 adults, 2 kids) which is the only way to make the assent with a 5yr old. Fun, amazing views and a lesson in pulley systems for the kids!!! Rain made for very wet snow, too slippery for the little one to keep his feet very well. BUT - there is a playground with swings, short slopes for sledging, tons of runs if you already ski and lovely instructors if you don't. The weather was against us so the little one and I snugged up in the Snowgoose with hot drinks and lots of nice food choices, not too pricey and wonderfully friendly service, most endearing staff. Fab family facilities and a wonderful spot for novices like myself. Dad and 9yr old had a good hour and a half ski before the weather stopped play. If you are thinking of taking very young children to ski or sledge, this is the best set up we have found in and around the Cairngorms, definately more appropriate than Glencoe for example. It's really good.
