Featured Descent

Colorado » Ten Mile Range

NE Couloir or NE face

Depending on snow cover, it may be possible to descend NE off the summit to the open snow field above the NE couloir.  You can also descent east off the summit and traverse skiers left to the snow field above the NE couloir.  When we skied it, the couloir narrowed about half way down the face to about 6 feet (this of course will vary with timing/snow conditions).  Once thru the narrow section, you're basically at the top of the apron, so let 'em rip!!
For extra credit, climb and ski one of the north facing couloirs on North Star Mountain on the way back to 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.
