Nevis Range signs Andorra snowsports deal

NEVIS Range has today unveiled a reciprocal deal with Andorra.

Under the agreement, Nevis Range’s 2022-23 season pass holders will get a free day of skiing at the Pal Arinsal and Ordino Arcalís ski areas in Andorra, while season ticket holders from all Grandvalira Resorts Andorra ski areas can enjoy a free day of snowsports at Nevis Range.

Chris O’Brien, managing director of Nevis Range, said: “We are delighted to offer this fantastic perk to our loyal season pass holders and to host continental snowsports enthusiasts here in the heart of the Highlands.

“Very early in our discussions with the ski resort teams in Andorra it became clear that we all shared an incredible enthusiasm for all things adventure tourism.

“This relationship is real evidence of the progress that the Nevis Range is making as an international brand promoting adventure and sustainability on a world stage.”

The deal follows on from Nevis Range’s recently unveiled two-year commercial partnership with Commencal, the international bike and ski brand based in Andorra.

Back in July, the Nevis Range management team travelled to Andorra to discuss the deal with Commencal.

While in Andorra, O’Brien, activities director John Sutherland, and brand manager Carrie Ferguson were introduced to the teams from the Grandvalira Resorts Andorra, which manages all of the ski areas in the Pyrenees principality.

“I’d like to extend my personal thanks to all the team at Commencal for introducing us to kindred outdoor enthusiasts,” said O’Brien.

“You can expect to see the Andorran flag flying alongside the Saltire outside Nevis Range.”

He added: “Pal Arinsal in Andorra will be hosting the downhill mountain bike World Championships in 2024 and we look forward to handing over to them after the event here at Nevis Range in August 2023 – it could not be going to a better place after us.”
