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!

Went recently with kids neither of whom had skiied before. Easy to hire all the gear and lessons were excellent in either small groups or 1:1. We had a number of intructors and as complete beginners came on further than hoped in the time we had. All staff helpful and friendly even when being evacuated off the mountain in high... More

A really friendly place, all the staff couldn't be more helpful. The Gondola is a great way to get to the snowline (at the moment) and perfect for both little and older people looking to sledge and ski. Certainly a highlight of our trip to the area. Stunning views wherever you look.

Well run gondola's with stunning views, enough snow to go sledging. Cafe good food and value, would highly recommend. Shame the high wire wasn't open at the start of the week (looks like opened today Thu 16th though) as the weather was amazing and plenty of children around that I'm sure would have been busy enough

Enjoyed a trip up the mountain last weekend. We got up early to be some of the first up and it was definitely worth it. The weather was glorious (if rather cold) and the views from the top were great. Enjoyed a cake a the restaurant and watched the skiers. Didn't look to be enough snow for alpine skiing and... More

We are staying in Oban and came yesterday but the gondolas were closed due to the high winds. So glad we went back today, the ride up the mountain is great with the views getting better the higher you go. When we stepped out it was fab to see all the skiers, boarders and sledgers enjoying the snow. We got... More

A day trip up the Nevis range is not to be missed. Transported up the range by the only mountain gondola system in Scotland. Arriving at the Snowgoose complex 2, 500 feet up Aonach Mor there is restaurants, bars, ski shop toilets. Pick one of the mountain walks to trek, the scenery is breathtaking. A photographers dream. Return to the... More

Our friends were in Scotland for the week and we decided to take them up in the Gondola. Checking in was easy and pleasant, and the journey up was fun with a fair bit of snow on the top. Nice walk out to the view point and very surprised with quality of food and drinks in the Restaurant - It... More

You're actually 3 mountains behind ben nevis. The cable car is very safe as is the path ways and the centre but you're not on Ben nevis

Gondola and several tows open today, snow pisted and Alpha Run very good but further up it was misty and really too windy to ski. The Goose tow open but tricky skiing. To be fair this was all explained beforehand and a day's skiing discounted back to a half day (9am-1.15pm) was £24 with your own equipment, very reasonable.

Back in 2013, my 77 year old mother and I took the gondola ride to the top and hiked to the Sgurr Finnisg-aig Viewpoint. The views were spectacular, though it was very windy. We did not eat at the cafe, but the scenery was worth the trip. This time (she is 81 now!), we made the same trip, and completed... More
