    Trinity Chutes, Mt. Shasta, 5-22-17

    We camped near Bunny Flat and started skinning around 3 AM. Bunny Flat was HOT when we started, not even close to freezing. But by the time we reached around 9,000' the snow was rock solid.

    Heading up the Pearly Gates

    Cooper Spur looked great but was too firm. We skied the Old Crater Route instead.

    Great skiing back to the bottom. All in all it was an excellent introduction to the Cascades. Can't wait to get back to ski the rest!

    Wow, you got the perfect weather window, not too mention near perfect snow conditions. My last attempt at Cascade volcanoes was clouds and rain the whole time.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...
