Mt. Shasta’s North Side~Hotlum/Bolam

It’s that time of year to go climb and ski the north side of Mt. Shasta!

The road is completely clear of snow up to the trail head. A matter of fact we had to hike to around 8,000 ft. before reaching snow. For more information check out my book, “Mount Shasta Guide to Fun”.
