The Lake District Ski Club is run entirely by volunteers. We currently have a team of approximately 10 helpers who run the tow at weekends and mid week, depending on their particular circumstances. However, we are always looking to expand the team.

One of the painting teams

Another successful work meet with around 18 members enjoying the beautiful sunshine and getting plenty of work done, once again we enjoyed a well earned visit to the Travellers Inn for refreshments.

We still have a few jobs to do though such as a little more work on the snow fencing and pylon painting as well as fitting the hangers ready for another great season on Raise.

There will also be instruction on how to run the ski tow this should help to free up time for more Skiing.

Next work meet is planned for Saturday 11th or Sunday 12th October. Check

For updates.

Remember many hands make light work so try to join in if you are free!

There is limited storage space for skis at the club. 27 pairs were unused last season and have been removed from the rack and placed under the benches. If you have a set of skis or boots in the club hut and you didn't use them last season, please remove them or contact the Hut Warden to reclaim them before the next workmeet scheduled for 12/13 July 2014. 

All skis unclaimed by this date will be taken down from Raise on our vehicle and stored temporarily off site. If they are not claimed within two months they will be considered as abandoned and disposed of. There is insufficient space for the hut to be used as a dumping ground for old skis.

The Lake District Ski Club is run entirely by volunteers who keep all of the facilities running during the season. During the Summer months we need some extra help to do essential maintenance.

Our work parties are usually held here on Raise on the first Saturday or Sunday of the month, depending on the weather.

It’s a fun day out on the hill, a great opportunity to put something back into the club and a good excuse for a pint in the sunshine at the Travellers Rest.

This Summer we need to: 

  • Replace the old diesel tank with a new 1,000 litre bunded tank
  • Get diesel up to the tow hut and hand-pumped into the fuel tank
  • Clean out the tow hut, number, list and repair all equipment
  • Rewire the safety system 
  • (electricans required)
  • Wire up the new i...

This is what you call dedication for the club.
Bernie and Terry were up raise today to fix the electric problem on the control box for the tow. After 10hrs of head scratching it was finally fixed. We can now run the tow but the operators will need some new instruction's on its use.
Many thanks to them both.
