Help us make Scotland's first wooded ski slope

Please help us to plant 3,000 native trees and make Lowther Hills Scotland's first forested ski centre. If we can make this work, we may inspire other Scottish ski centres to follow our path.

On the ski slopes at Lowther Hill, next to the Southern Upland Way, the new trees will provide a valuable landscape improvement to an area that has been devoid of trees for centuries, and will be enjoyed by thousands of skiers, hill walkers and outdoor enthusiasts visiting the Lowther Hills for centuries to come.

The Lowther Hills Ski Club is run entirely by volunteers.

It is solely due to our volunteers' hard work that skiing facilities exist in the Lowther Hills. The Club holds work parties to maintain our equipment and run the ski tows. Work parties are a part of our club culture and are an ideal way to not only contribute to the club, but also a great way to meet like-minded people. Read more about our club culture.

If you would be willing to give us a hand at any work meets or help with the running of the tows please let us know at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Please support your club wherever you can: looking for funding, donating, helping at events, sharing on facebook...

You can also support the only ski area in the south of Scotland by donating petrol, used ski equipment, or building materials.

Petrol represents the Club's main item of expenditure. Many members and friends regularly donate petrol which is used to keep running the ski tows.

The Club accepts donations of ski or snowboard equipment. We lend these for free to those members which don't have their own equipment, particularly children.
