Deep snow on Ben Nevis

Today I started with 4 lads from London on the 3 Peaks Challenge. We knew right away it was going to be hard work as it had been snowing all night and still snowing up high. We got below the half way lochain and hit the snow line. As we got high the snow got deeper! The team ended up moving quite slowly and their clothing and footwear was not up to scratch for this summit so I decided we would head down and thaw out. Every other team we saw had turned back due to being ill prepared. One team had summited, however they were very well kitted out. The lads decided to come back in the summer and climb all the 3 peaks in one go so we didn't carry on to Scawfell. Today I was working for Activus Outdoors.
