• “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 are so awe-inspiring, I promise you, everything in your life will suddenly come into perspective. Just 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.

    Hiring me to guide you in your Mt. Shasta Experience will give you the reprieve from life as usual that you NEED to feel like you again. Likewise, you’ll create some truly fantastic memories when you see the picturesque views of Shasta that only I can show you!”

    “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.”

Castle Lake Area

Castle Lake Area

It’s been a couple years since we’ve been able to ski at Castle Lake with the lack of snow last season. We decided to check it out and found some SNOW! It’s enough to make for an excellent base but we need more coverage for the good skiing.  The lake is not completely frozen yet making for beautiful photograph. If you happen to hear an eerie echo sound, it’s the ice moving. The Native Americans thought the sound was evil spirits.
