Ladies and gentlemen, we introduce you to soon-to-be South of Scotland's only snowgroomer: a mighty Kässbohrer PB070 (similar to the one in the picture below). We need to act quickly but we're still a bit short of funds. So, here's a bit more begging: any spare pennies that you may be able to donate to the cause will be as always much appreciated. Please donate here.
[UPDATE] 31st May 2019: We are now half way our target! Your Lowther Hills volunteers are working extremely hard to ensure we buy South of Scotland's first snowgroomer before the winter season 2019/2020. We have just finished building the garage and access for the groomer. Everything is ready for it. Let's give it the final push!
We need your help to raise £9,900 to purchase a snow groomer which could double the number of skiable days at Lowther Hill.
Renew your membership before 31st October for early bird pricesWe are keeping last year's membership fees until the 31st October. Membership fees will rise a 10% after that date, so renew your membership or take your new membership before the 31st October to benefit from last season's fees.
Junior members of the Lowther Hills Ski Club came to help their club to get ready for the season, and had fun painting the Engine Hut in a beautiful forest green colour.
We'll be doing the emergency stop installation on the Lowther tow. There's plenty of things to carry up and down the hill, so that's a good day of healthy exercise for those available to help :-)
...plus 10 other ski centres that share the mountain with a Radar Station
The prominent golf-ball like structure on the summit of Lowther Hill is one of the first things most people notice when they visit Leadhills and Wanlockhead.
It has been an exciting Winter season 2014/15; our fantastic volunteers managed to run the tows 20 days while juggling with construction works on Lowther Hill. We provided fun on the slopes for our increasing number of members, most of whom are families with children. We worked long hours under the most appalling weather conditions. We gained planning permission to build new facilities. We dismantled and relocated Harwood's ski tow to Lowther Hill. We built an engine hut and placed a temporary club hut on the hill. We installed the highest webcams in the south of Scotland. We filled in paperwork, knocked doors, begged for favours, funding and for donations. We met great people and made many good friends.
We want next season 2015/16 to be even better.
