Ski Mt Shasta

Ski & Board

An Icon and Mecca for earn-your-turns snow riders; Mt. Shasta has been called “one of the top 5 ski mountaineering peaks in the world“. The backcountry skiing and riding are legendary in the Cascades and Mt. Shasta is the crown jewel. With a deep maritime snowpack and reliable California weather which creates a near perfect ski surface; this is truly an epic adventure. The vertical relief is over 7,000 with just our own determination to get us uphill. This is backcountry skiing, split-boarding, and ski mountaineering. With skins on skis, each turn is earned. Call for more info or to join us for some fun. We offer 1 to 4 day tours, seminars, and summit climbs and descents.
