Good job it wasn't a bloke. Them grass stains get everywhere.

Well she got her bum well scrubbed clean then.

According to the report the BMC's hillwalking officer added: "If you're going into the hills remember you may encounter the white stuff - anything from the odd patch to large areas. So be prepared."

Don't they mean brown stuff??

I think that we should petition the IOC to get pants-round-ankles glissading introduced as a new event at the Winter Olympics.

Apparently her pride was a big thing around her way.

Ben Nevis can retain snow all year but it does all go sometimes as well.

There seems to be an entire sub-culture around snow-patch watching, eg.

In reply to Deviant: MRT spokesperson later said. "It's a stark reminder to all to ensure you are properly equipped when going into the mountains, adding that map compass and shewee should be carried at all times and hill goers should have the expertise and experience in how to use them"! HSE later added that shewee should be considered essential PPE ( or should that be PEE)? That's how I imagined the incident to be reported!
