First off a confession as this blog entry may be slightly skewed by my rose-tinted personal experience.
You see I was one of thousands of primary school children taught to ski at the Midlothian Snow Sports Centre - known as Hillend to everyone - in Midlothian so have some quite fond memories of it.
Learning to snowplow, trying to grab the button tow properly, hurtling down the main slope with carefree abandon and laughing hysterically as friends fell over and hit the mat are all part of my childhood.
I'm not alone in having fond memories as a Facebook campaign with more than 26,000 members is dedicated to saving the facility.
Hillend's future, or lack of, has been on the agenda for the past few months with Midlothian Council struggling to subsidise what is now a loss making venture.
