We need your help to raise £9,900 to purchase a pistebasher which could double the number of skiable days at the Lowther Hill slopes of Lowther Hills Ski Club in Southern Scotland.
A pistebasher will help us to compact and move drifts of snow around at Lowther Hill. This creates a longer lasting and much better surface for skiing and snowboarding. A well pisted snow surface is of particular help to beginners and children, helping them to enjoy snowsports and progress their skills.
THE ONLY SNOW GROOMER IN THE SOUTH OF SCOTLAND!
Lowther Hills is South of Scotland's only ski centre. We are also Scotland's only community-owned and volunteer-run ski centre. We don't have access to the large sums of public money that is given regularly to the larger ski centres in the Highlands. Instead, we recycle everything and stretch the pennies as much as we can, we regularly organise fundraising events like the Lowther Hills Cycle Sportive and the Lowther Hills Ski Sale, and every now and then we have to resort to scrounging and asking for help :-)
We have been saving money for a few years to buy a snowgroomer. We've built a garage for it and now we are ready to buy it. We have already located pistebashers which will suit our purposes perfectly. Now we need to raise the final sum of money to afford them.
Can you help us to bring to Lowther Hill the only snow groomer in the South of Scotland by the coming winter season 2019/20?
