Mount Shasta, a magnificent stratovolcano at the southern end of the Cascade Range and the jewel of Northern California at 14,179 ft (4,322m), is the perfect stepping stone to level up from your local mountains and prep for high-altitude, international expeditions.

A Shasta climb, ski trip, or mountaineering school will help you build a solid foundation for future mountaineering endeavors. With four different trip options varying in length, route, and skills training, there’s something for everyone looking for an epic adventure on this iconic California peak.
