After the storm, comes beautiful winter days, of course! The last two days of warm, wet and windy weather didn't make much impact on snow here in the Highlands. After cooler overnight tempweratures the snowpack was hard and brilliant for cramponing along the Carn Mor Dearg arete and onto Ben Nevis. The rain surprisingly hadn't collapsed the beautiful sculptured arete alomg the ridge. The sun came out late morning just in time for some nice pics, then there was a few snow showers early afternoon. The hills are definately still wintery and with some nice dry and sunny days ahead it'll be lovely and Alpine like once more, brilliant. It's not over till the fat snowman sings!
