Home of the World Cup DH, Nevis Red & Witch's Trails XC
Witch's trails + skills loops open all year. Gondola uplift open 10.15am-3.45pm, mid May - mid Sep 2014.
Track diversions & closures - 2013
This section is updated as soon as we're aware of diversions & closures, which are mainly due to storm damage, Forestry Commission operations and events. Tracks can also be closed on maintainance and bad weather days, further information on the daily Mountain Report.
World Champs route - OPEN - after the storm damage early 2013, the trail from the Haggis trap (tunnel) to the next forestry road was clear felled early summer 2013. Work to re-instate the track took place throughout the summer and the trails reopened at the start of November 2013. [Last update 2/11/13]
Downhill & Nevis Red (with Gondola uplift)
Nevis Red - diversion - summer 2013 - There will be a diversion (around point 17 on the map) for 2013, and maybe into 2014. There will be a natural section for about 300m. We will improve this temporary section once the main work on the tracks is done, but in the meantime while much of it will be rideable there is likely to be a 30m walk to rejoin the track. Riders should not try to ride the original track instead of the diversion as there are hanging trees which could come down at any time. This area will be clear felled but it is complicated and requires planning and a road to be built.
