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!

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 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).
