17.14: Mount Agassiz Ski Hill

This photograph at a much larger scale reveals detail of the ski hill and area. Most of the area is wooded 1, mainly deciduous with occasional patches of dark-toned coniferous trees 2 with some individual trees throwing triangular shadows 3. The ski runs are lighter toned because the trees have been removed 4. A straight northwest/southeast trending line is the path of the chair lift 5. Small huts housing the lift mechanism can be seen at the base 6 and the top 7. Two ski chalet buildings are located at the base, in the northwest 8. A service road—light-toned 9—approaches from the northeast with a parking lot north of it 10. The faint line 11 north of the service road is the line of the power line to the hill.
