Our webcam set-up is unique (winterhighland webcams on Lowther Hill ), it is not just at a high elevation, but it is entirely off-grid, communicating to the outside world over a mobile network and without a connection to mains electricity.
On the other hand, our life is made easier by many businesses from our local area and beyond, who generously support our plans to make the Lowther Hills the mountain playground of the south of Scotland.
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 :-)
