South Skinner glacier

South Skinner glacier is the upper part of the glacier complex called Skinner on the north side of South Sister. At one point these three glaciers were one glacier, but by the U.S.G.S. mapping in the 1950s, Skinner had separated in to three glaciers, yet only one name was put on the map. The ice of South Skinner glacier has vanished in the last decades.
