Lowther Hills Update - May 2018

The last patch of snow on the slopes at Lowther Hill finally melted last weekend (picture taken a couple of weeks ago). It has been a good season with 30 days of operations and about 90 days of snow on the hill. If you haven't already, do check the Snow Report section on our website, or our facebook and twitter to see a few videos and photos of the past season. Worth checking also this enthusiastic mention of Lowther Hills as one of "Europe's best-kept secret ski resorts in 2018". All this is happening thanks to your support, members, friends, and followers. And of course special thanks to our hard working volunteers who keep the lifts and the club running.

We operate a nursery slope with a 140 metre-long rope tow in the village of Leadhills and an area for intermediates with a 450 metre-long rope tow on Lowther Hill.
