Mount Shasta has been claimed by Couloir Magazine as the quintessential Ski Mountaineering peak in the lower 48. Shasta Base Camp concurs, after all you can drive 15 minutes year round to the base of a fourteener, climb up Avalanche Gulch and It doesn’t matter if your up for 500′ or 10,000′ of vertical skiing there is a backcountry route for everyone! All levels of skiers and snowboarders. Our daily detailed avalanche forcast from the Forest Service, and friends at the Avalanche Center keeps the local backcountry enthusiasts inspired.
Mount Shasta, 14,162ft and access year round makes for great backcountry adventure from December to July and sometimes year round!
Do to record low snowfall this year, there is not much good news on the Mountain to report. Check back with us next year for the best BETA in town. Pray For Snow 🙂
