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.

Be prepared for high winds and cold temperatures, and always check the weather before you climb.View Full Report
