Chatter Creek Cat Skiing Terrain

There is an enormous amount of alpine terrain south of Vertebrae lodge at Chatter Creek. Much of this terrain has only been opened up for cat skiing in the past year or two, much of it in 2005. This aerial photo shows MCO, South Park and parts of other cat skiing zones at Chatter Creek. Scroll down four posts to see MCO Pass in the setting sun.

In the photo above, MCO (Multiple Cascading Orgasims) crosses the photo from left to right, dropping from MCO Pass. South Park rises in the background from above center to the top right hand corner of the photo. To the south (left) of South Park, the lake of Lakeview is visible, although all of the Lakeview cat skiing terrain lies hidden. Harbourview, yet another cat skiing zone, lies south of Lakeview, barely visible at the top left hand corner of the photo.
RUZM Gully (Right up ze Middle) decends in shadow from between the two knobs at the right edge of the photo. Elbow Drive lies hidden beyond RUZM. The Gong Show drops away to the left, at the bottom edge of the photo. Click the photo for a better view.
