Well after 6 weeks of trying we eventually managed to get the chopper to come a drop some much needed gravel on the Nevis Red, all we need now is a little rain and we can get the Red route back to its former glory.
Check back for updates soon.
We’ve been trying to arrange a helicopter to fly snowfencing and materials for maintaining the red track for a couple of weeks now, but things keep going wrong. First of all the helicopter was busy then it developed a fault and then yesterday the mist was barely above the top station, so not great flying conditions. The next proposed day is 27 July. We are flying bags of gravel so it won’t hold up proceedings for long, but we won’t know the timings until we see the weather on the day.
busy day on tracks with lots folks arrivng for this weekends race-oh and a ginormous Chinook helicopter to lift a ginormous poorly Seaking helicopter into the car park to get fixed-now then wheres me hammer…………
The Downhill and Nevis Red are both fully open this weekend (5/6/7 May) which will give people a bird’s eye view of the new jump line being constructed by Mark Hedderwick’s Hitrak team. Tons of material has been amassed (which is why the downhill has been closed during the week). It is now being shaped. From Tuesday 8 to thursday 10th the downhill will be open but will have a diversion at the puggy pipe for more material to be collected. And the DH is closed a little early on Friday 11th and all weekend 12/13th May for the Halo British race.
Getting ready for the hill squad to do snowfencing repairs means flying the timber into position.
Lots going on with the mountain bike downhill tracks. We’ve been working on resurfacing both tracks over the last couple of weeks with 2 helicopter days flying about 40 tons (nearly 50 flights) of lime. It is a massive job to ‘Whack’ all of this to keep it in place. Where the trees came down on the Red track (huge trees) their root plates lifted the track so there is a new log ladder there made from one of the fallen tree. Board walk is being painted or meshed berms re shaped.
Diggers are at work under the gondola line amassing enough material to creat this year’s new feature for the world cup. Hope to have some pictures soon.
Blue Skies in the park snow is grooming up very nice got a little box out and hopefully have a small kicker in the morning
Its been a long time coming Finally got all the rails dug out up at the summit..

The new piste basher was finally unloaded at Nevis Range carpark yesterday, in the middle of blizzard like conditions in the car park, fitting for a PistenBully 300 Polar. Coming from a resort in Switzerland, via the the PistenBully factory in Germany where is was reconditioned, it’s ‘new to Nevis’ with just some 3300 hours on the clock.
We’re looking forward to getting it up and out on the slopes as soon as possible! The blade is significantly larger than any of the existing groomers, so will be able to quickly shift 100’s of tonnes of snow around the pistes. Particularly useful building jumps and shifting snow in the summit terrain park.
It’s also got a flex-tiller which will leave a cleaner and much better prepared piste than before.
Now we just have to wait for enough snow to open!
