Custer Ridge
Parent Area: Skagit Range
 

Area: 90 sq km. Location: Divide between Maselpanik Creek and Chilliwack Lake. Custer Ridge starts just N of the international boundary and 6 km E of Chilliwack Lake. It runs NNE for 12 km to Klesilkwa Mountain. Terrain: High, rocky ridges, suitable for hiking and minor scrambling. Perhaps, somewhat limited for ski touring as the snow pack likely bonds poorly with the slabby rock that is characteristic of steeper slopes in the area.
