“A fun spring ski of a Mt. Shasta on a lesser traveled route.”
— Angela Anderson
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry
Need to Know
It's a pretty straightforward route, but pay attention down low to make sure you don't miss the trailhead.
Be ready to get looks from mountaineers coming up the popular Avalanche Gulch side of the mountain as you're clicking into your bindings ready to make a fast descent to the bottom. A less crowded side of the mountains gives you open areas to descend without crossing too many bootpacks.
If you can time your descent with the conditions, you could have a solid 7,000 foot descent. Skiing was nice at the top and slushy at the bottom. We were able to patch snow sections together and ski the entire way to the car.
