I finally made it up to Castle Lake this season and found some good corn conditions.
Looking toward Middle Peak.
Ski tracks and snowshoe tracks side-by-side. This is an excellent example of setting tracks.
Lots of snow still. It will be a while before the lake melts out.
Up close and not too personal!
Castle Lake is known for major cornice build-up along the ridges. Beware of these when skinning or climbing on ridges. Cornices also break off creating avalanches especially during warm temperatures.
What’s been going on Mt. Shasta…
a variety of conditions from corn to 6 inches of fresh powder to breakable crust.
Rain may be heading this way and snow at the upper elevations. Check out the latest climbing advisory-
Have a great weekend everyone!
