Mountain Lodges at Chatter Creek
The lodges at Chatter Creek. In five years, Chatter Creek has become one of the largest snowcat skiing operations. It's Vertebrae and Solitude lodges provide over 18,000 sq.ft. of living space. Its three late-model Bombardier snowcats transport 36 skiers and snowboarders over a 130 km. tenure which offers one of the most varied powder skiing experiences in the snowcat skiing business.

Extending between the elevations of about 4900 ft and almost 10,000 ft. the huge tenure includes two glaciers, many alpine bowls and open slopes, and great forested ridges with open glades, old burns and large cut blocks. An application is in progress to increase the tenure by over 90 sq km.

In almost 10 visits to Chatter Creek over 5 years, your Chatter Editor has yet to ski some of the major areas of the Chatter Creek tenure. MCO and South Park are still to be "discovered" and it was only this year that we got to explore Dewar's Bowl and other alpine slopes of the Chatter Creek watershed. The place goes on and on!
