Fresh Snow

The mountain in the foreground is Joffre Peak ( 8927 feet ) and Mount Matier ( 9131 feet ) is in the background. In the middle of Joffre Peak is the Aussie Couloir which people ski down when the conditions are right. To the left, below Mount Matier is the Anniversary glacier. If you look closely you can see four backcountry skiers making their way up the glacier. The fresh snow made the mountains look beautiful, but there was the real danger of avalanches.
