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.
Are you a qualified ski or snowboard instructor and based in the South of Scotland? We'd love to hear from you...
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.
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.
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.
We are hosting a "Volunteer Open Day" on July 27th in Lowther Hill.
Come along and enjoy a visit to the slopes before the works start in September. Meet new friends and like-minded people interested in snowsports, and find out how you could help to create and be part of the first ski centre in the South of Scotland.
In 2013 the Lowther Hills Ski Club elected a new Committee with experience in ski centre operations and a strong commitment to provide access to Winter sports for the wider public on a more regular basis.
An unique opportunity has arisen as the Pennines-based Harwood Ski Club, has offered us the chance to acquire their equipment and relocate it to Lowther Hill.
Be part of the only ski centre in the South of Scotland!

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....
The Lowther Hills Ski Club is run entirely by volunteers.
It is solely due to our volunteers' hard work that skiing facilities exist in the Lowther Hills. The Club holds work parties to maintain our equipment and run the ski tows. Work parties are a part of our club culture and are an ideal way to not only contribute to the club, but also a great way to meet like-minded people. Read more about our club culture.
