Lowther Hills Ski Club 2019/20 Memberships are now available online on this website. Join now here.

Like in previous years, we aim to provide 20 days of mechanical uplift, either in Leadhills or on Lowther Hill, always subject to favourable snow conditions and availability of volunteers.

At village level we will have the usual set up, running one or two portable tows at Leadhills Golf Course depending on how many people there are on the slope. The village tows tend to open mainly during January; they are accessible for the whole family, just a 5 minutes walk from the Hopetoun Arms hotel in Leadhills. Thanks to our popular night skiing we often open the tows after school hours during midweek.

In February and March, when the snow retreats from village level to higher altitudes, we switch operations to Lowther Hill. Please bear in mind that the ski slopes at Lowther Hill are only suitable for intermediate or advanced skiers/boarders who are happy to walk or skin up to the slope.

Finally, we always love to remind our fantastic membership that the successful running of the Ski Club is only possible thanks to the help of our volunteers. Whether it is attending a work party, getting trained to operate the ski tows, or helping to look for funding for new projects, there is bound to be something you can help with.
