For the last few days it's been rather un -seasonable with heavy rain, snow above 800m and strong winds. I was on Ben Nevis today with Jackie and Geoff and you could be forgiven that it was mid December! We were on the Pony track up to the summit. After a very wet early morning, it turned to wintry showers above 500m and the cloud base was around 900m. On the plateau it was poor visibility and the foot prints suddenly 'ended' near the Tower gully area? We had the summit to ourselves for a couple of minutes before the crowds 'followed' us!! Still around two and half metres of snow on the plateau. On the decent the sun came out and things started to look Spring like.
