Powder Skiing at Chatter Creek
The alpine reaches of Lodge Ridge as it passes above the Megahooped trees. From the top of the ridge there are tree runs and much alpine skiing to the west (on the far side of the ridge) and open-slope runs into the Spruce Creek gully to the east. This near-side slope has lots of hummocks that makes for interesting and fun skiing. It's known as Mommy's Run and it's fantastic!

The valley to the west (opposite side)of Lodge Ridge contains Chatter Creek and the Chatter glacier. The Chatter Creek watershed provides a great deal of superb alpine terrain, including Dewars Bowl on the upper (northwestern) reaches of Lodge Ridge. There is also some very nice tree skiing on the west side of upper Lodge ridge. The upper right corner of the photo shows the edge of the Golf Course as it decends from Spruce Pass on the east side of Lodge Ridge.

Click for a view from Lodge Ridge of the cat road to Vertebrae glacier gives a sense of the drop into the gully below the Megahoop trees.
