Megahooped and Jo-Pal

Powder Skiing at Chatter Creek
The cat road to Vertebrae glacier can be seen climbing Stovepipe Mnt from the left of the "Megahoop" trees, across the hill to the right (Fig. 2 to the right) and disappearing into the shadows. It then reverses direction to traverse the bench that separates "Megahooped" on the lower slope from Jo-Pal, on the upper slope. At the left of the photo, the road skirts the end of the sharp ridge to the north of Jo-Pal and passes onto the Windlip.    Wonderland and Bouncing Chuckles are below the bench, within Megahooped.   Click on Fig. 3 on the right to see the area names.

This slope provides many lines on the return trip from the Vertebrae glacier, which lies beyond the rocky summit of Stovepipe Mountain at the top center of this photo.
