      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Shasta beta

Recommended Posts

Going down to Shasta for the first time next week and I am looking for current info. Wondering if anyone can tell me if the Wintun-Hotlum Route is still in shape for a ski descent, or advice on what route would be best right now for skis or boots. Looking to summit with the family so easier routes are what we had in mind. Thanks!

SMG Shasta Mountain Guides are good for reports on ski mountaineering route conditions on Shasta. Give em a call. I climbed Avalanche Gulch last Friday and saw a few skiing from below red rocks, 12,500 maybe. Above that it was too wind blown for skis.

Very good. Snow starts about 8000 ft. Camped at Helen Lake. Was surprised to see so few people. Big area to ski in. Easy solo to summit.
