Fun Facts:

– Although there are only 69 mountains over the 14,000- foot mark in the United States, Mt. Shasta is the most massive, boasting a 100 cubic miles of mass.

– Because there is a sulfur steam vent near the summit of Mt. Shasta, the mountain is considered a dormant, as opposed to an inactive, volcano.

– A Shasta- Trinity Forest wilderness ranger and Ski Park employee, Dan Towner, has the record for the most ascents of Mt. Shasta: He has climbed the mountain well over 140 times!

– The Guinness Book if World Records reports Mount Shasta received the most snowfall ever in a single snowstorm: 189 inches (15 ¾ feet) February 13th to the 19th, 1959.

– The youngest person to successfully climb Mount Shasta was a five-year-old girl in the 1960’s and in the 1980’s an 86-year-old man climbed to the top.

– Built in 1985 MT. SHASTA SKI PARK is the newest winter resort in California and one of the newest in the entire United States.

  • We come up to visit family and friends quite regularly, and besides the many beautiful places to visit during the summer.. this place does not disappoint for the winter activities. This place is small and reasonably priced.. (Holiday week & weekend will change the price) The runs are fun and the views are beautiful. Disclaimer: I would recommend renting gear before you come up.. you will waste half your day.. Good for beginners and advanced skiers & snowboarders. They have a small place at the top to get food, which is cool to take a break from the crowd below. At the base, you can have them watch your snowboard for a dollar, while you get beer and some grub. If you can grab a spot at the fire, than you will be set. Bring Chains and have fun!!!
  • Inexpensive resort without any frills. Good mix of easy to advanced runs. Great views on Mount Shasta and mountain ranges around. The black runs here are more like steep blues elsewhere. Ski school can't be reserved in advance and was sold out when we arrived at 10:30 for a1:00 class, which was a bummer. No parent swap tickets, the sales rep hadn't even heard of the concept.
