A winter climb of Mount Shasta is a serious undertaking. Deep snow, avalanche hazard, and extreme weather conditions are all common during the winter months. These, along with many other factors, make a winter climb very difficult and potentially dangerous. Only strong and experienced climbers with an ability to evaluate avalanche hazard should attempt a winter climb. Always carry avalanche rescue gear, along with a helmet, crampons and an ice axe. Be prepared for high winds and cold temperatures, and always check the weather before you climb.
