Howson Peak from Tom George Plateau # 7781

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2005.05.05
Vantage Point: From Tom George Plateau

Caption: Howson Peak, Loft Peak (the small snow triangle), Lakehead Peak and the Sandpiper's Loft from the East in May.

PhotoDescr: We were camped on the Tom George Plateau, high above the Burnie Glacier Chalet, to ski the peaks in the Telkwa Range. This panoramic view shows the true proportion of the range: Howson Peak dwarfs the Loft, which we frequently ski. And that is a long run in its own right!

The wonderful classic ski terrain on the Loft shows clearly: 1200 vertical metres into the Bowl of Never-Ending Love and down towards the lake. The steep E side of Lakehead Peak is a run called Ptarmigan. The top is difficult and dangerous, but the run from the small moraine bench to the lake is on the upper limit of classic. Howson Peak's East Face towers above it all.
