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.

Founded in 1986, we are a volunteer-based, family-friendly club which has snowsports facilities on the Lowther Hills.

We operate a nursery slope with a 140 metre-long rope tow in the village of Leadhills and an area for intermediates with a 400 metre-long rope tow on Lowther Hill.
