Ben Nevis Winter climbing conditions

I will be running a separate page for winter conditions on Ben Nevis once the 2015 - 2016 season gets underway. It is under the Winter section of the website. The link is here BEN NEVIS CONDITIONS.

Mountain Motion Blog

This is where you can find some pictures and blogs of what I have been up to. I'm not the most avid blogger in the world!, but when the Winter comes there will be regular conditions updates for Ben nevis as well as a dedicated Ben Nevis conditions page this coming winter.

Cheers
Richard

Small mountains but a big serious mountain feel and amazing views. Excellent venue for the course. Thanks to Scamadale Centre for hosting the course.

Took Rab and Nick up Tower ridge yesterday and we came down ledge route to avoid the hordes. By far the best way down off the mountain if you are parked at the North Face carpark. A great and quick day, just over a couple of hours to get up the route. Lots of very deep snow
