Nevis Range Activities

Multi-activity Centre

Torlundy, Fort William, Inverness-shire, PH33 6SQ

    Nevis Range in Fort William is the mountain experience for all seasons offering a wide range of activities such as winter snowsports, climbing, mountain biking, Hire Wire Adventure, Zoomtrax tubing slide, paragliding and walking.

    At the gondola base station there are over 25 miles of trails through Leanachan Forest to explore on foot or bike. With all routes graded from easy to expert, from a short stroll to an extremely challenging walk, there’s something for everyone. Trail maps are available from the main ticket office.

    Situated on the edge of Leanachan Forest is High Wire Adventure – a series of exciting treetop ropes courses. Tackle the Barn Owl, Red Fox and Wildcat before testing your nerves on the Swoop. There’s even the smaller Squirrel course for little adventurers. It’s fun and challenging for kids and grown-ups and absolutely no experience necessary. High Wire Adventure is open spring – autumn and closed in winter.

    Nevis Range boasts a vast range of mountain bike trails varying from relaxing forest trails suitable for even the most inexperienced of riders to cross country and downhill trails. Home to the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, ride the official world cup downhill track from the gondola top station all the way to the finish area at the base station car park.

    Located just outside the top station building is the Zoomtrax, a 40m tubing slide. Enjoy whizzing down the slope in an inflatable ring, fun for all ages and no skill required. Best of all it’s free! Open from 11am-2pm – summer school holidays.

    In winter Nevis Range offers skiing and snowboarding to 1190m on the mountain of Aonach Mor, often lasting into the spring season. There are a range of green and blue graded runs, perfect for beginners, located close to the gondola top station. Further up the mountain, there is an extensive network of red and black runs as well as the acclaimed boardwise terrain park and Back Corries off-piste runs. Nevis Range is also popular with winter climbers and offers gondola and chair uplift to 870m. Alternative winter activities include sledging, snowshoeing and snow biking.
