Fresh snow fell to sea level today in Fort William. It did not stay around long but there is now a good cover of fresh snow on the hills above 500m. It has been cold (-5C on the tops) for a few days now and the remaining ice on Ben Nevis is freezing back onto the rocks underneath.

I wonder if we will be ice climbing in May this year. I have only climbed grade V ice in May once before so it is about time to do it again. Fingers crossed!
