A taste of winter again today for Paul & I. We headed up to the CMD arete on Ben Nevis from the upper carpark in Glen Nevis. We had a lovely spell of 10 minutes of sunshine and some midge bites before the snow showers began. . Paul had been up the Pony Track on the Ben before so I took him up a more remote  and scenic way, via the Waterslide into Coire Eoghainn. We had wet snow, hail, dry snow and windblown snow today . At the abseil posts we headed over the arete, very atmospheric and we did get a glimpse of the ridge at some points. Descended via Allta ' Mhuillin and the Ben Nevis Distillary. The weather's been very strange recently, temperatures up and down like a certain persons under garments.
