Featured Descent

Colorado » Front Range

St. Mary’s Glacier

The descent is a mellow run that ranges between 20º and 34º.  There is a headwall on skiers right, which will put you in the glacial lake, and is prone to avalanches.  Be careful of this in with new snow, as the under layers are pretty firm and often icy.  Skier's left is a much more mellow line, that ends at a pile of rocks, where often people will leave lunches and whatnot.  In winter and spring you can ski back down the road and end up back at the car.

Details

No specific access considerations although a permit is required to climb Shasta, obtainable from the mountain shop in the town of Shasta. 

Lots of stuff to ski from a small area at the base to long (5-7k ft) descents from the summit on many different aspects.  Just follow the trail of headlamps at 4am up avalanche gulley. 

Watch out for Lemurians

How to Get There

It is the biggest peak around, just follow the signs.
