The snow fallen last week has thawed, therefore we won't open the nursery area this weekend. However, Lowther Hills Ski Club member Ross Dolder, with friends Jamie Johnston and Craig Cameron enjoyed the snow above Leadhills to practise some winter skills including transceiver searches for avalanche rescue, and snow-hole making for emergency shelters.
