Ben Nevis.
Hiked in Friday night and stayed at CIC hut.
Skied #3 and #4 gullys in the coire na ciste bowl.
:: Weather Conditions
"Shonky Tonk" weather (pish wet!) and droppy cornice's prevented us from venturing onto some of the more adventerous gullys
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Granulated spring snow. Despite the torrential rain some sections were still pretty firm

Tyndrum Lead Mines. Last worked in the early 1800's.
:: Weather Conditions
The west coast weather forced us underground for the day for a spot of Subterranean Spelunking
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
It seemed to be thawing above ground. Below ground things were really wet. muddy and somewhat damp. However good shelter from the storm force winds.
