From the Summit. The primary ski is down the south face of Mt Toll. there are a couple of different options from an open snow field to a fairly narrow couloir. Both of which provide nice turns. Once down from the main snow field and conditions permitting make you way back to Blue Lake and follow the same trail you took on the way in to get out.[more]
The Cascades are divided into 2 areas, which are the High Cascades and the North Cascades. The High Cascades are volcanos, where as the North Cascades are non-volcanic mountains. The snow is generally heavier than other areas of the country as it is effected by the warm southern winds, the high moisture, and the higher temperatures. Mt. Rainier is one of the most famous peaks in this range.
How to Get There
Go to California, and then head north. the cascades cover a lot of areas, all the way to canada!
