Lowther Hills Ski Club

Share

The Lowther Hills Ski Club www.skiclub.lowtherhills.com/ is a community interest company building and managing snow sport facilities in and above the Southern Uplands villages of Wanlockhead and Leadhills in the south of Scotland. We are all volunteers, and volunteers from far and wide are the lifeblood of the ski club, making the most of the freely given materials and generous donations that have brought us so far already. I've taken lots of photos of our work and some of the people doing it over the last 2 and a bit years so as to document our progress and I'll be adding more as we go along.

Road meeting

The NATS road affords some colourful chance encounters. This time, the snow fencing work party volunteers meet with a mountain biker who uses metal-studded tyres to enjoy the ride to the summit all year round.

Slatting

On one side of the tow, we've woven pallet slatting into a stock fence as a cheap and cheerful solution to gather up wind-blown snow.
