• “When you experience everything this truly magical, mystical, beautiful mountain has to offer, you’ll feel all of life’s stresses organically just melt away. We’ll travel to some of the most desirable, hidden spots that Mt. Shasta has to offerJust the act of coming here, escaping your daily grind, will replenish you in miraculous ways. You’ll leave Mt. Shasta with a renewed sense of fulfillment and confidence, because all of the noise in your head will simply, disappear.

    “I highly recommend Robin! You couldn’t be in better hands. She fits the adventure to what you, personally, are interested in and able to do. I came away energized and more confident in what she taught me.”

I would like to dedicate this post to my good friend and ski partner Ed!

Many of the backcountry and mountaineering community have run into Ed one time or another somewhere…Mt. Shasta, Lassen Peak, the Tetons, Mt. Rose and the list goes on!

This past week he passed away after a long battle with leukemia. He skied every chance he got and lived the life of a true backcountry skier. I always thought of Ed as the Energizer Bunny. He just kept going and going and going! Afterwards with celebration of beer, hot dog sausages and potato chips.

We spent a lot of time over at Lassen Volcanic National Park!

Roughing it and the summit parking lot of Lassen.
