The Nevis Range is a good choice if you are a boarder or you just prefer chairlifts because there are more here than anywhere else, so plenty of chance to give those tired legs a rest without missing out on skiing time. The "Back Corries" provide great snow sports for experts with a huge open area of black and red slopes. You can also find some of the best off-piste skiing here too when conditions allow. "Skiing or boarding in the back corrie is an experience that we guarantee will equal many off-piste routes throughout the world." (www.nevisrange.co.uk)
