It's been good to open the village slope again. Last week's high winds and drifting snow caused quite a good deal of disruption across Scotland but the situation is slowly getting back to normal.

On Lowther Hill, the snowfenced areas have accumulated a new layer of the white stuff and the sheltered slopes inside the gullies have received a very generous plastering. The upper section of the B797 has been affected by drifting snow and parking space in the villages is still at a premium. The forecast for the weekend suggests it might be a bit unsettled; as always, members keep an eye on your emails.

Please remember: Lowther Hills is a membership-based ski club. You need to sign up as a member to use the club's facilities, and only members receive information regarding the opening times of the slope. Join here:
