The site is now prepared for construction of the engine hut.
Without volunteers we have nothing! Here at the Lowther Hills Ski Club, we just want to say thank you to all of our volunteers for all that you do.
Saturday 29th November. Tom Moffat removing the turf from the engine hut site and David Warnock watching a true professional at work.
The site at the end of the day, overlooking the ski tow line, and still pending to be re-turfed.
Sunday 30th November. Gary Weir brought ski tow parts and the rope to Lowther Hill, and investigated the proposed location of the temporary clubhouse. Meanwhile, Rab Paul was fixing another lot of pylons in Wanlockhead and Allan Guild tried to disassemble the remains of the old ski tow which has been on Lowther Hill since the 1960s.
The solidly built International BTD caterpillar refused to leave Lowther Hill, its home for half a century. We will have to try again soon.
Monday 1st December. The banks which will provide protection from the wind to the engine hut were re-turfed...
...the rope was laid on the ground along the ski tow line...
...and Peter Stewart dreamt of the first lift to the top of Lowther Hill.
The Lowther Hills Ski Club is run entirely by volunteers. The Club holds work parties to maintain our equipment and run the ski tows. If you would be willing to give us a hand at any work meets please get in touch.
