That was my last day of the season shooting at Chatter Creek and it was a blast even though I didn’t feel the best. The snow was deep and the fun-o-meter was hitting the top! Such good times again for that fifth season. A huge thanks to all of you who came to ski with us, the owners Dan and Dale, the managers, the outdoor staff, the indoor staff, the ladies at the office, See you next winter for another amazing season!

Super fun day : Dan Deckelbaum was out there taking photos of the group and his brother too while shredding pillows to small powdery bits! Jaffrey was putting on a show too! Jaffrey definitely gets a three year immunization against the “Pink Purse” for his insane improvements at powder skiing! Obviously that is subject to change in case of a big enough pursuable offense. For people who have never been at Chatter Creek, be shure to ask whoever will be doing the welcome speech during the first diner about the “Pink Purse” for clarifications!

These conditions were awesome! Everybody was going off all sorts of fun features and landing in great snow!

I know, I know, it probably smell a lot more like summer wherever you are at the moment but we got a couple more pictures to showcase from the end of this great season. It was great alright, my last three week shift was just a long streak of stormy weather and deep powder conditions. See for yourself!

My only day of the season in the Fishbowls. It just snowed too much this season. I didn’t just write that did I?

My girlfriend was among us on this epic day on the Vertebrae Glacier dropping from about 2926 metres (9600 ft). All of us got to see the Sullivan Fault (the face with all the curved earth layer lines), Mount Columbia ( 3747 metres, more info), the Columbia Icefield, Mount Tsar( 3424 metres, more info). We got to ski five lines down the glacier including a Throttler’s Notch (see captions).

Photos taken by Alain Sleigher who is one of the two staff photographers at Chatter Creek. Dylan Page and Alain Sleigher go out there everyday on each snowcat to capture your experience out there. Crashing in front of one of them is the best gift you can give your group as they will all be able to enjoy it and laugh about it around a delicious drink of their choice.
