Freeriding, terrain parks and pistes
in Nevis Range
The Nevis range does have its own secret weapon known as the Back Corries. When they are open and conditions are right the Back Corries are probably Scotlands best freeriding terrain with some genuinely steeps, cornices and cliff drops.
When they're not open and there's good enough coverage head to the top of the goose t-bar and head left and cut under the summit button, where you'll find a long gulley. Head the other way past the Sidewinder slope and head out the main area and there's some easy off-piste to be had, but watch out for rocks and aim to cut back to the bottom of the quad chair.
Theres usually a park at the summit, depending on conditions theres usually at least some rails, and sometimes a couple of kickers. As soon as it snows the crew are out there building things and they often run big-air competitions.
Away from the park, head out to the top of the corries for some serious air opportunities and dotted around the resort are plenty of lumps and bumps and fences to pull tricks off.
PistesAny carvers out there will find that the Snowgoose Gully is the area to lay some lines on. But overall Nevis is not a cruiser's resort.
There are a number of easy slopes located at the lower areas not far from the top gondola station, but these can get a bit congested at weekends. If you can master a tow, then head further up and give yourself more room and a longer practice run!
