Volunteers constructed the engine shed and pinned the final pylons for the ski lift as night fell.

All remaining pylons now welded and ready to go on the hill.

Look! Santa has dropped off a little present for the Lowther Hills Ski Club!

The site is now prepared for construction of the engine hut.

Thank you to all our wonderful, committed and amazing volunteers who erected the first pylons of the Lowther Hill rope tow on Sunday 23rd November 2014.

We have been keeping busy in the past weeks before starting works on Lowther Hill. Here are some of the most relevant jobs we have been doing...

The Lowther Hills Ski Club currently operates one nursery area for children and beginners in the village of Leadhills. The nursery area on Lowther Hills will be open as soon as the construction of the new clubhouse is finished by the 2016/17 season.

On Wednesday 15th October we had a work party at Wanlockhead to sort the ski tow pylons and get them ready to go to Lowther Hill.

We are hosting a "Volunteer Open Day" on Sunday 12th October in Leadhills Golf Course and up on Lowther Hill.

Meet us at 12.30pm at Leadhills Golf Course. We will see the beginners' area at the Golf Course and then will go up to Lowther Hill, where the ski tow and clubhouse will be built. The tour will take about 2 hours approximately.

South Lanarkshire Council is currently processing the final stages of our planning application for the "erection of a timber clubhouse, toilet facility, engine house and rope tow to facilitate downhill skiing" on Lowther Hill.

A massive thank you to all our volunteers for their great work at Harwood on Sunday 14th September 2014.

With the help of our friends from Harwood Ski Federation Ltd, we successfully demolished the two engine sheds and brought the ski tow engine to the Lowther Hills.

We wholeheartedly thank our volunteers for their tremendous work at Harwood on Saturday 6th September 2014.

Donald Chalmers, Ross Dolder, Ed Forrest, Allan and Louise Guild, Tim Mullens and Peter Stewart helped our ski centre become a reality by helping to transport the first half of Harwood's equipment to the Lowther Hills.

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.

This rare film, possibly the only surviving film of early skiing in the Lowthers and in the South of Scotland, shows a day of skiing in Wanlockhead in the late 1960s.

You are invited to attend our annual AGM on Sunday 21st September 2014 at the Hopetoun Arms Hotel in Leadhills.
