That's all the snow now gone from the south of Scotland after a couple of weeks of mild temperatures and rain, including a record-breaking weather up north in Aberdeenshire. The long range forecast until the end of February is not looking very hopeful, but again in previous years we have opened the lifts in March and April so stay tuned :-)
Greek week on Lowther Hill, thanks to all members who came to enjoy the sunny but icy conditions with good humour as always. Special thanks to the volunteers who worked hard patching the bottom of the tow track - thanks to them we were able to ride the tow all the way from bottom to top.
Epic conditions at Lowther Hill with much more snow than anticipated. We were expecting the usual tussocky patches appearing after last night's rain, but the snow resisted quite well - particularly near the snowfence, where we have over a metre of snow!
What a fantastic school holiday week; the weather has been on our side most of the time and, thanks to our fantastic volunteers, we were able to open most of the Half Term holidays. It's been great seeing the wee bairns enjoying the snow.
Happy Christmas to all members, volunteers and friends of Lowther Hills. Some young volunteers of the Lowther Hills Junior Ski Patrol visited Lowther Hill today to check whether there would be enough snow to run the Lowther tow this week.
We enjoyed another week of snow at Scotland's Highest Villages with the tows running on Thursday, Friday and Saturday thanks to the availability of our volunteers. Excellent conditions, best snow quality at village level since the 2015/16 season.
Excellent conditions at the Nursery slope tonight and beautiful night skiing under a starry sky. Ski Club members will receive further updates regarding opening times pending on snow conditions and availability of volunteers. Oh, and "Lowther Hills in southern Scotland gets bragging rights for being first in the country to open for 2017-18" !
