Engine and drive wheel aligned, snow fencing ready to go up, and a few more bits and pieces.

We're trying to fund a solar powered webcam for the Lowther Hills Ski Club so you can see the snow. Even if you don't ski or snowboard, you'll love the view in the Southern Uplands above Scotland's highest villages.

Rope spliced, drive wheel ready to be coupled to the engine, vehicle recovery, and celebration as the Engine Hut survived hurricane gusts of 100mph .

We strengthened the engine hut and successfully ran the Lowther Hill ski tow engine for the first time.

... and here's a brief overview of what others said about us over the past year.

Club members will receive their ski passes in the course of next week. The Lowther Hills Ski Pass has been designed by renown illustrator Andrew Foley (www.leafywonder.com)

Volunteers constructed the engine shed and pinned the final pylons for the ski lift as night fell.

All remaining pylons now welded and ready to go on the hill.

Look! Santa has dropped off a little present for the Lowther Hills Ski Club!

The site is now prepared for construction of the engine hut.

Thank you to all our wonderful, committed and amazing volunteers who erected the first pylons of the Lowther Hill rope tow on Sunday 23rd November 2014.

We have been keeping busy in the past weeks before starting works on Lowther Hill. Here are some of the most relevant jobs we have been doing...

The Lowther Hills Ski Club currently operates one nursery area for children and beginners in the village of Leadhills. The nursery area on Lowther Hills will be open as soon as the construction of the new clubhouse is finished by the 2016/17 season.

On Wednesday 15th October we had a work party at Wanlockhead to sort the ski tow pylons and get them ready to go to Lowther Hill.

We are hosting a "Volunteer Open Day" on Sunday 12th October in Leadhills Golf Course and up on Lowther Hill.

Meet us at 12.30pm at Leadhills Golf Course. We will see the beginners' area at the Golf Course and then will go up to Lowther Hill, where the ski tow and clubhouse will be built. The tour will take about 2 hours approximately.

Are you a qualified ski or snowboard instructor and based in the South of Scotland? We'd love to hear from you...
