5th Annual Shasta Ascension Backcountry Race

Date(s):01/20/2018 - 10:00am | Price: $20

RACE UPDATE:  We are still full steam ahead on planning for the Shasta Ascension  Backcountry Race to be held on January 20.  We are still hoping for snow at the Mount Shasta Ski Park but our plan B will be to either reschedule the Ascension or change the location to Bunny Flat. By early next week we should have a determination of the location of the race. We will keep this page and facebook updated with this information. 

Several years ago we held the Shasta Ascension at Bunny Flat and it was a great alternative to the Mt Shasta Ski Park. We are excited for the event and hope to see you there! Join us for this unique event! Climb up the mountain, then ski back down. Great prizes for best times and best costumes. Proceeds benefit the Mt. Shasta Avalanche Center.

Events to support the Mt Shasta Avalanche Center will be going on all day long with free backcountry ski demos, hosted by the Fifth Season; free intro to backcountry ski instruction by Shasta Mountain Guides; and the 16th Annual Snow Ball with live music and lots of prizes in the evening.
