Fantastic conditions on Lowther Hill for this time of the season. Throw Rig and the main Lowther Hill slope survived the scouring and thaw of the past week and are still complete from top to bottom.

We are still enjoying the base that has been on the ground since early January. Despite the rain and drizzle of the past week, we have a good half a metre of snow by the snowfence - although elsewhere the Spring weather has started to melt the exposed areas. A new front of rain and mild temperatures will hit south of Scotland this week; we are expecting the unfenced areas to suffer the most, but hopefully the base by the snowfence will resist for another play during the weekend. Members, keep an eye on your emails towards the end of the week.
