'The very poor summer of 2015, coupled with the previous snowy winter, has meant that far more snow is around this year than any since 1994' says Iain Cameron, who runs an annual survey of Scotland's summer snows.

'It's very likely that we'll have snow persisting till next winter in places where it normally does not.'

'The patch that was skied on in this film is called the 'Feith Buidhe slabs', so-called for its proximity to the rocky feature on Ben Macdui where the Feith Buidhe stream runs over the rocks, here. This particular patch survived until winter last year, albeit it was very small when lasting snow came.'
