We've been having a few cold days on the hill as it's usually the case at this time of the year. The first snow of the season came on the 8th November with a very thin dusting of snow on Lowther Hill, followed by a bit more snow on the 11th, see webcam picture. First snowfall at village level, another thin dusting, came on the 14th. Winter is approaching fast, please renew your membership now before we start running the tows!

"Lowther Hills Ski Club runs South of Scotland's only snowsports centre"
Founded in 1986, we are a volunteer-based, family-friendly club which has snowsports facilities on the Lowther Hills.
We operate a nursery slope with a 140 metre-long rope tow in the village of Leadhills and an area for intermediates with a 400 metre-long rope tow on Lowther Hill.
