Join us on this exciting climbing and skiing tour on Mount Shasta, California.

For this trip, we’ll meet at our office the day before. We’ll answer all the questions and make sure that you have the necessary equipment and experience for the day ahead of us. Together, we’ll define the itinerary.

The most common climbing route is the Avalanche Gulch Route, which offers incredible views. And the most popular descending route is the Hotlum-Wintun. Nonetheless, there are many other routes available and all skiing routes offer up to 7,000 feet of exciting continuous and uninterrupted skiable terrain.

It is highly recommended that you are an advanced skier or snowboarder in order to do this trip. Skills in ice axe, crampons and rope are also necessary to reach the summit. If you’ve participated in any Ski Mountaineering Clinic before, you’ll enjoy this trip even more. It is important that, once we reach the summit, you have enough energy left to enjoy a unique ski descent.

If you’re ready for a physically challenging adventure, send your request!  

This trip will be operated by one of the 3 permit holder outfitters: Shasta Mountain Guides, Alpine Skills International and SWS Mountain Guides.

Great guides and great snow!



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
