Views over North America's Continental Divide

Powder Skiing at Chatter Creek
Crichton Pike's photo from about 9600 ft., at the top of Chatter Creek's Vertebrae Glacier, shows Mt. Columbia in the center and the Snow Dome on the skyline, just to the right of center. The Snow Dome (the second low rise, furtherst to the right) is the hydrographic apex of North America. Snowmelt from this point flows into three oceans. The Snow Dome is also the source of the famous Columbia Icefield.
