The weather on Ben Nevis is often unpredictable which is not surprising given its latitude and arctic conditions for much of the year and as such walkers and climbers should always be aware that weather conditions on Ben Nevis can change rapidly and often for the worst. A good day at sea level is no guarantee of good weather on the mountain! Be safe. Be prepared.
