  1. Climbed via Worm Flows route Saturday the 8th. There was no snow at Marble Mt. Snow Park (no surprise for this year) and there wasnt much snow untill you break out of tree line. The snow was pretty soft at the lower elevations but got pretty icey towards the summit, snowboarders and skiers were having a tough time, crampons are recommended. On the way down the sun had softened most of the ice so that steps could be kicked at least a little for some footing. pitty.gif


  2. So what are some of the favorite winter routes on Shasta (not counting the Casaval Ridge route). Any beta on the routes would be sweet too!! Just wondering because im just curious and was thinking about a trip down there this winter.


  3. I was down there about a couple weeks ago and there was about a foot or two of snow down at Trout Lake and the forest road was completely snowed in from where it turned off of the plowed paved road. I think from the beginning of the road to the trailhead the mileage is about 12 miles (then you gotta add the 7 or so miles from the trailhead to the summit). I would think St. Helens would be a better choice for some turns in terms of accesibility (unless you would like to walk the 12miles up the road to the trailhead). laugh.gif
