What a Season!
The most snow we have seen in years and it is still coming down!!
Tip for Spring:
If you think you didn't get enough skiing in this season. Think about joining us on Mt. Shasta. The conditions are good up there and May should be fantastic.
Got First Aid Skills?
Have you ever wondered what you would do if someone in your group broke their leg skiing or your climbing partner was struck in the head by a rock? Every backcountry skiing, climbing or mountaineering group should have people trained in wilderness first aid skills because it's only a matter of time in before you will need to put them into use in the backcountry.
Wilderness First Aid - WFA & CPR
This entry level, 2-day (18 hour)
June 1-2, 201p
Also counts as a WFR ReCertification.
SPRING SKI MOUNTAINEERING
Mt. Shasta Steeps Camp
From 50/50 Camp on the Standard Route from Bunny Flat, we'll climb and ski the Trinity Chutes, about 40° for over 2,000'. All totaling about 7,000' from the West Summit back to Bunny Flat. The conditions right now are absolutely amazing!
This is a spectacular descent for experienced steep ski mountaineers.
June 8-9, 2019
Hidden Valley Basecamp
There are very few places in the world that offer the length and variety of ski descents that Mt. Shasta offers. On a clear day you can see more than 100 miles in every direction from the summit, and theoretically, you can ski in any direction for over 7,000 vertical feet.
This is our favorite tour because we camp at Hidden Valley, which keeps us away from the crowds, putting us in perfect postion to climb and ski one of Shasta's longest, sustained pitches, or the option to ski off Shastina as well.
