Nevis Range moving forward with interim CEO Rod Pashley

Nevis Range Mountain Experience, Lochaber, has announced the appointment of Rod Pashley as interim CEO.

 

Rod Pashley said: “I’m delighted to be involved in a business that delivers the very best adventure experiences that Scotland has to offer and I look forward to helping Nevis Range on the next leg of their phenomenal journey!”

 

Rod brings an incredible amount of experience and energy to the role.

 

Rod’s career began in mountaineering taking in three years in Antarctica and 17 years with The Outward Bound Trust as Director of Training.

 

Rod’s incredible body of work led to the creation of People Positive, where Rod served as Managing Director for over 20 years.

 

Ian ‘Spike’ Sykes, Chairman of Nevis Range commented: “Rod’s experience, drive and enthusiasm will be a huge asset for us and we are delighted to welcome him to the Nevis Range family!”

 

Rod added: “It’s a really exciting time to Join Nevis Range who are having quite a transformative year recording their highest number of skiers in over 10 years, making significant strides in the mountain bike market through a partnership with Trek bikes. We’re just coming off another successful Mountain Bike World Cup, the redevelopment of our café facilities and the establishment of relationships with a number of Chinese tour operators.”

 

“There are many plans in progress at Nevis Range to enhance the customer experience and I fully expect that in the near future Nevis Range will be recognised as one of the leading experience centres in Europe!!”

 

Nevis Range in Fort William, home to the UK’s only Mountain Gondola; is the mountain experience for all seasons. Activities such as winter Snowsports, Climbing, Mountain Biking, High Ropes with Tree Adventure, and Zoomtrax tubing slide.

 

Partnered with Trek Bikes, Nevis Range and Trek will work together, unveiling a number of initiatives over the next year, designed to encourage and develop Mountain Biking at all levels at Nevis Range, whilst transforming the reach of the home of the Fort William Mountain Bike World Cup into a globally recognised Trek mountain bike destination.

 

As a first step Trek has invested in both equipment and content creation at Nevis Range enabling both track development and promotional activity aimed at truly international audience.

 

From 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 Tree 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. Tree Adventure is open spring – autumn and closed in winter.

 

In winter Nevis Range offers skiing and snowboarding to 1190m on the mountain of Aonach Mor, often lasting into the spring season. There is 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.
