Glencoe On The Market Again (19-Mar-09)

Glencoe, Scotland, March 19, 2009 - Scotland's original ski centre has been put on the market again

Scotland’s original ski centre has been put on the market again, reportedly in an attempt to find an investor who would look at funding a gondolas lift to replace the aged chair and make the centre more viable as a year round attraction.

The idea matches the successful route of Cairngorm at Aviemore and Nevis range near Fort William, both of which attract more summer than winter visitors with their funicular and gondola lifts.

Nevis range has been especially successful attracting mountain bikers who use the gondolas to lift their bikes to the top of a downhill course and Glencoe aims to emulate this business plan.

Glencoe has been in financial trouble for most of the past decade, bought out of receivership in 2004 and rescued again by a management buy out in 2007.
