Milk River Ridge
The Milk River Ridge is a high, flat ridge in southwestern Alberta, Canada. It is about 2,700 square kilometers (1,000 sq mi) in area. Its plateau is about 1,219 meters (4,023 feet) above sea level - which is about 274 meters (904 feet) higher than Lethbridge to its north. The Milk River flows through the plateau.
Because of its height, it can be especially windy on the plateau - especially when the Chinook blows in. Though rare, it is also not unheard of to have snow in the summer. Two summer snowfalls of note in recent years are August 21–23, 1992 (up to three feet), and July 15, 1999 (at least one foot).
