Mount Shasta ascent via Avalanche Gulch in 3 days | United States

Enjoy this incredible tour in Mount Shasta, one of the largest stratovolcanoes in the world, with one of our certified guides.

Cascade Range

3 Days

Apr - Sep



Mount Shasta, with an estimated volume of 350 km3, is the most voluminous stratovolcano in the Cascade Range. Located near the Oregon border in northern California, it is the fifth-highest volcano in the state, reaching 4,321m. On this 3-day  tour we will take the most popular and easiest route to its summit: Avalanche Gulch.

Many climbers try to reach the summit of Mount Shasta. All of the routes present challenges and hazards. The most popular one is Avalanche Gulch, which gains about 7,300 feet (2,200 m) of elevation, in an approximated 11.5 miles (18.5 km) round trip.

On our three-day guided ascent to Shasta you will learn the basics of mountaineering: ice climbing, crampon use, route finding and safety. No previous experience is necessary.

Shasta and its surroundings are part of the Shasta–Trinity National Forest, which encompasses five wilderness areas, hundreds of lakes and more than 6,000 miles of streams and rivers. While climbing this peak, you will enjoy unforgettable views of this wonderful scenery.

So, if you want to enjoy an amazing outing to the summit of Mount Shasta, please contact me! We´ll be glad to guide you on this unforgettable mountaineering experience!

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!
