    ^^ that's fantastic. did you access from north gate?

    brewer creek TH is blocked due to snow 1/4 mile from the turnoff. it probably won't be accessible for another few weeks at least

    Yup, parked at Northgate.
    Wanted to explore one of the lava flows west of the Northgate Chutes.
    The snow didn't connect. Started to cloud up and the winds picked up to 30-40mph.
    So, got a short run in.
    Really good snow.

    Wow - nice work! Any special tips for making all of that happen in a short time window? Would love do to Lassen + Shasta on a 3 or 4 day weekend, coming up from the Bay Area - seems like you were very efficient!

    It's 2.5 hours from Lassen to Shasta trailhead. You can easily get a camp spot on Friday night, ski Lassen on Saturday, drive to Shasta TH, camp in your car, wake up hella early, keep climbing until you feel like puking or the snow is getting soft (knowing that however soft it is under your feet, it will be 3x as soft/wet/sloppy at the bottom of the mountain, and then ski back to your car. Right now coverage at bottom of Devestated Area @ Lassen and coverage at Bunny Flat make this very easy.

    Under 5 hours from San Jose to Lassen trailhead. You can get close to 4 if you have a radar detector and very few fucks left to give (especially with regard to deer and bears on the road at night, both of which I've had close calls with at Lassen). Of course, if you leave before 7 PM it's more like 7 hours to Lassen.

    ^^What Schralph said. You don't have to get up that early either, I left BF at 6 am and I summited around noon, perfect for upper mountain corn and lower mountain slop.

    It looks like winter is back this week!! I'm going to find some wind buff. If anyone is around say hi, Im the white F350 with a Lance Cabover.

    Does it actually go? Probably, after a short down-climb.

    Anyone else plotting a Sunday/Monday Shasta trip? There's 3 feet of snow in the forecast for Saturday night, I'm hoping the conditions will line up to keep avalanche danger modest but there's always later in the week if not.

    Awesome, Scralph - and Dheli - thanks! I've definitely had the puking feeling - my friend actually puked... - around 13k on Shasta and am hoping to get back this summer for a summit (third times a charm?). I appreciate the beta.

    B - sick pics! Thanks for the stoke.

    Any recent reports? How are things holding up? It looks like some hot weather is on the way to town, but the forecast I saw for the mountain had highs and lows both the same, in the 30's. Seems odd.

    Considering whether to drive from CO.
    I came into this game for the action, the excitement. Go anywhere, travel light, get in, get out, wherever there's trouble, a man alone

    Found snow just past the railroad tracks on the way in.
    Thought I could make it up Road 42N71 in the morning.
    The skinning started off good, but the road disappeared.
    Should've skinned up the main road.
    Got off track and ended up getting manzanited.
    Didn't continue on.

    Yeah Harry - I've noticed the same thing for the last several days. The temp forecast may be the result of a small warm system that is expected to the north over the weekend.

    thx for the photos Jib - wow, didn't expect snow level so low.
