Video clip of Glencoe yesterday and pics of snow above Fort William today

A quick clip of yesterday's climbing with some video footage:

And some pictures of the forestry track up to the dam on Ben Nevis today (at about 160m altitude).... they give some idea of how much fresh snow has been put down. Its being blown around and leading to scouring in some locations and deep drifts in others. Pay close attention to the SAIS forecast and the conditions as they change around you on the hill.

Nevis Range were hit by the same issue that's been plaguing them again today: early calm weather and a gondola running then mid morning strong winds leading to them closing for the day again (and leaving a few mountaineers and Instructors with a long walk down from the looks of the car park too).
