Few Openings Left in Chatter Creek's 2005 Schedule

Powder skiing enthusiasts who do not yet have reservations but  still want a cat skiing adventure  next winter at Chatter Creek are advised to call Merle McKnight at (250) 344 7199, just as soon as possible.
There are still a number of  openings before Jan 7, 2005 and after March 8.  The  booking schedule shown on the Chatter Creek Web site indicates openings on Jan 18 to 21, March 8 to 11 and March 15 to 29,  but those are the only dates indicated in high season.  These high season dates will likely fill very quickly as the fall approaches and people start to think again about the joys of powder skiing.
If you have waited too long to get the dates you want, and you are able to join a tour at the last minute, then consider placing your name on the Chatter Creek standby list.  You might get lucky!  Alternatively, don't shy away from the shoulder season, either in December, or in April.  The skiing can be excellent and it is a little less expensive.
On one of their earliest trips to Chatter, your editor and his mates encountered 150 cm of storm snow at Chatter, on top of a good base.  It was the lightest and deepest snow any of us had ever skied in. It was amazing!  The sort of thing we all read about, but never experience.  The time of year?  The second week of December!  If you have concerns about the shoulder season, talk to Merle McKnight.
