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....





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.

If you would be willing to give us a hand at any work meets or help with the running of the tows please let us know at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Founded in 1986, we are a community-owned, volunteer-based, family-friendly club which promotes winter sports and operates ski tows in the Lowther Hills in the South of Scotland.
