Except Ben Nevis isn't inhabited. Which mountains in California? The link I posted about Colorado is of a place at 10,000.

Yea but it says recorded a frost every day of the year.... not every year.

I think its safe to say i've probably recorded a frost ever single day on November, December, January, February, March and April. Maybe October.

I don't think many places in the world at sea level except near the Arctic Sea have recorded a frost every day of the year. Days are short at high latitude.

This thread is about the closest inhabited place to the equator that has recorded frost every day, not the closest place to the equator at sea level that has recorded a frost every day.

By my estimate a place needs to have an average low of about 5C (41F) in the warmest month in order to have frost every day of the year.

Well Altnaharra has recorded frosts everyday inclusive from October to the month of May.

With June recording frosts on 21 out of 30 days.

With September recording frost on 20 out of 30 days.

And Altnaharra is at 80m so I am sure that maybe somewhere at 500m has recorded frost on every day.
