Just a 1 hour drive from Oban Holiday Home you have the choice of Nevis Range or Glencoe ski resorts. Glencoe is the oldest resort in Scotland but some great skiing to be had there.
Nevis Range has skiing up to 1190 metres (3900ft) on the mountain of Aonach Mor. This is Scotland's newest and most modern ski area, located next to Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis. Lifts include a quad chair and six-person gondola. Situated around the top of the gondola, close to the Snowgoose restaurant, is the area for beginners, including a range of green and blue runs. Further up the mountain is an extensive network of red and black runs, as well as the acclaimed Boardwise Snowpark. Here you'll also find the imposing off-piste of the Back Corries with steep runs to challenge even the most experienced of skiers.
Glencoe is Scotland's original ski centre dating back to 1956. It has an awesome location at the South end of a valley. The resort began life as a weekend haunt for dedicated skiers and has become increasingly popular in recent years among more daredevil skiers and riders. It is one run in particular called the Fly Paper - the steepest black run in Britain - that offers the biggest appeal. In total Glencoe has seven lifts serving its runs: four green, five blue, six red and one black. A wide variety of accommodation is available locally. Glencoe is a popular day trip destination for everyone.
