We have had two teams walking up Ben Nevis over the last two days so if you are interested in the snow cover right now these pictures will help. Yesterday Jo celebrated her birthday by taking her family up Ben Nevis with Andy, one of our walking guides. They all did really well and also got some nice views of dramatic clouds coming in with some slightly worse weather. We had a little rain yesterday evening but not very much and the snow is only melting away slowly.
Self reliance is a fundamental principle of mountaineering. By participating we accept this and take responsibility for the decisions we make.
