Cat Roads for Glacier Skiing at Chatter Creek Snowcat Skiing
Cat roads and ski tracks on the Vertebrae glacier at Chatter Creek. Access to the glacier is from the far side of the ridge, over the top of the col. The elevation at the top is about 9600 ft above sea level. For views and terrain on the way up, see the road to Vertebrae glacier.

The areas suitable for glacier skiing extend far to the left, and to the right, well outside the picture. The northeastern exposure protects the glacier from the sun and that, together with the high elevation helps keep the snow light and dry late into the season as the weather starts to warm up.
