I had a chance to check out the north side of Mt. Shasta…

North Gate Trail Head

It is now passable all the way to the trail head. The last 4 miles slower going.

We booted it for a 1/4 mile before skinning. Snow is melting fast down low.

Hotlum/Bolam 9,750 ft.

 Skiing and climbing are good high. Jigsaw puzzle and connect the snow dots coming down!
