Rangers have not been on the Bolam Glacier this year. The glaciers on the mountain have a fresh coat of snow from the above average winter we've been having already. Expect full winter conditions and most crevasses to be obscured. Consider any snow bridge potentially weak and unstable. This glacier does not host much for an icefall and also does not have many crevasses. That said, don't let your guard down. As always, winter storms mean cold temps, high winds, and new snow. The Bolam Glacier is small and not often traveled. It offers peace and solitude and is another great route on Mt Shasta offering amazing views of Shastina and the Shasta Valley. Feel free to call the climbing rangers for specific questions. Many variations exist for this route.
