Description

Mount Shasta is a volcano situated in the south of the Cascade Range, in California. With an elevation of 4,321m, it is the second-highest peak in the Cascades and the fifth-highest in the state. On this 2-day guided ascent we will reach its summit via its most popular route: Avalanche Gulch.

There are no official trails to the summit of Mount Shasta. However, the Avalanche Gulch route is the easiest way to reach it. This two-day guided trip involves ice climbing and safety instructions. Our tour is open to all the intermediate mountaineers in good physical condition who want to improve their skills and ascend Mount Shasta.

Mount Shasta has several glaciers, specially on the north and east sides. Hotlum is the most voluminous in the state of California, and Whitney is the longest.

The area is also surrounded by  hundreds of lakes and more than 6,000 miles of streams and rivers. While climbing this mountain, you will enjoy views of a beautiful natural landscape.

So, if you wish to climb the imposing and wonderful Mount Shasta, please contact us! We will be glad to guide you in this demanding ascent to its summit!

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

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

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.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

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!
