After a long winter of fluffy arching turns made easy by riding chairlifts in Tahoe, it was time to go EARN some turns and pay homage to the Mother of all California peaks…Mt. Shasta!
Although not the highest peak in California, she is the most badass and can dish out the most rewarding of experiences, as well as the most daunting. Taking on Shasta is synonymous to spinning the roulette wheel. The odds are stacked against you and the chances of hitting your preferred number are fairly rare (that being, the equivalent of summiting the peak). The house holds a strong advantage and more times than not turns a climber about-face, with a march back towards base camp or to the parking lot down at Bunny Flats for a slice of humble pie!
