NEVIS RANGE MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE
The Nevis Range Mountain Gondola is the only one of its kind in Britain and reaches the heights of 650m. It was built on the north face of Aonach Mòr, the 8th highest mountain in Britain, originally as a way to transport skiers to the slopes. The Mountain Gondola has become an visitor attraction, allowing visitors to enjoy the scenic ride and absorb the stunning views and clear mountain air. It is also widely used as a short cut by climbers to the many challenging winter climbing routes on Aonach Mòr and by hill walkers to access summer routes. During the summer mountain bikers who ride the exciting & challenging downhill tracks use the Gondola for uplift as do paragliders on their journey to the clouds.
Home to the UCI Downhill World Cup Since 2002. Whether you’re an extreme Downhill mountain biker or a complete beginner, Nevis Range has the trails for you! Trails in the lower forest are open all year around.
