We are very sad to report that our temporary clubhouse on Whiteside was completely destroyed by Storm Desmond during the night of Saturday 5th December.

It is with great pride that we present this season's membership pass, designed by renown illustrator Andrew Foley (www.leafywonder.com).

Lowther Hills Ski Club is working with snowboard school The Northern Movement to provide snowsports instruction and coaching for our members this season 2015/16.

We here at Lowther Hills Ski Club do many things. Building and digging until late in the night, getting soaking wet and eaten by midges, begging shamelessly, and generally recycling stuff that nobody else wants. Oh, and we also like getting people into snowsports...

We are pleased to report that Lowther Hills is now on Winterhighland's app, Scotland's most popular snowsports application software for iPhone and Android users.

It has been a busy couple of months since our last general update back in August. We have been pleased to see some of the paperwork activity of the past months starting to bear fruit.

It's been a very busy September organising this exciting cycling event which has brought a lot of kudos and exposure for the Ski Club, and will contribute to achieve the next round of developments at Lowther Hill.

We extend our sincere appreciation to our sponsors, without whom our work would not be possible. We invite you to support these community-minded businesses.

Renew your membership before 31st October for early bird prices

We are keeping last year's membership fees until the 31st October. Membership fees will rise a 10% after that date, so renew your membership or take your new membership before the 31st October to benefit from last season's fees.

Junior members of the Lowther Hills Ski Club came to help their club to get ready for the season, and had fun painting the Engine Hut in a beautiful forest green colour.

As part of our fundraising efforts towards the purchase of a snowgroomer, Lowther Hill will hold one of Scotland's most exciting cycling events: the Lowther Hills Snowball Sportive.

We'll be doing the emergency stop installation on the Lowther tow. There's plenty of things to carry up and down the hill, so that's a good day of healthy exercise for those available to help :-)

We’ve been a bit quiet of late on updates from the hill. Your Committee has been very busy trying to secure funding for the clubhouse and snowfencing. The paperwork to change the legal structure of the Unincorporated Association into a Community Interest Company is about to be completed and submitted soon. We are also looking into the purchase of a snowgroomer and all the funding and storage consequences of such a step.

...plus 10 other ski centres that share the mountain with a Radar Station

The prominent golf-ball like structure on the summit of Lowther Hill is one of the first things most people notice when they visit Leadhills and Wanlockhead.

Our fun, Summer work parties are back! Join us on Sunday 12th July on Lowther Hill for a bit of fresh air, healthy exercise and sunny weather :-)
