Ben Nevis : Conditions

Ben Nevis seen from the hut 
Er there are none, but there is good news. A quick walk up to the hut with Vicky showed little snow driving round and things stripped well back after the large amounts a few days ago. Once up to the hut looking into the Ciste Number three and two are complete with snow down and covering the approach slopes. The Cascade area looks to have had ice forming and the line and spread is visible but certainly not climbable. Round in number 5 and up into coire Leis their is still a good build up of snow visible so with the temps now dropping and more snow coming it is setting its self up a bit. Ground still soft although not that soft at the hut.
