South of Scotland's only ski centre, Lowther Hills is a small, family-friendly ski area which is run by unpaid volunteers. Please read about our Club Culture.

We operate on a membership basis, which is open to all. Your membership allows you to use the ski tows free of charge every day we open.

The annual fees are shown below. It is a straightforward annual subscription running from Autumn 2018 to Autumn 2019. Once issued with your membership's ski pass, you can use the ski tows as much as you can.

Your Lowther Hills membership benefits also include discounts on day tickets at other Scottish ski centres.

Please note we have no hire equipment. Members are responsible for bringing their own equipment.

Please be considerate and join days in advance to allow our busy volunteers enough time to process your membership and club insurance. Bear in mind that are not able to process new memberships, do admin work, and reply to emails when we are out on the hill running the tows and managing the crowds :-)

Whether you ski regularly, or occasionally, or you no longer ski, joining Lowther Hills Ski Club is a way to support a historic Scottish ski hill. Your membership helps to keep in operation the only skiing facility in the South of Scotland.

Club Culture

Lowther Hills has a unique set up when compared with other Scottish ski areas. It is Scotland's only community-owned ski centre, a volunteer-run social enterprise where members undertake all tasks associated with running the mountain. New members who understand this culture of helping out, enjoying, and communally sharing the rewards are most welcome to join Lowther Hills Ski Club. Read more....
