Nice! I was scanning the interwebs for a recent pic.
Thanx for that!

It WILL be a great summer of skiing. This rain should melt off the remaining snow at lower elevations. Looking to approach the mountain next week.

Can't wait!

Good weekend to hit up Shasta's north side.
I was there the last couple days.
Snow drifts cover the road at 6500'
on the road to the North Gate TH.

I drove in another way.
If you've got a 4X4 you should take the route I did.
Turn right from 42N16(the main route to NG) onto 42N34 >42N33

It's driveable to 7000', plus I punched in the last snow drift for you.

Really SMOOOOOTH snow right now!

New trailhead! Instead of going to North Gate, I made my own trailhead.

Thanks for sharing the beta!

Thanks for the beta. I'm looking for a slot to make it to the north side in the next few weeks.

This is a great way to approach the north side.
I highly recommend it if you got a vehicle that's appropriate.
This is the route I took on the way out.
Much easier to follow than driving in on 42N18.
Image

Very simple on the return from the upper mountain.
Just stay between the two very obvious
drainages/creeks on your way down.
Might want to visit Coquette Falls.
Image

Take a right at this sign.
This is where road 42N34 takes off to the right.

Was up there the past two days.
Met a friend from Tahoe in town, just outside the 5th Season.
Roger and his buddy Seth.
They had just come down from the Diller TH to fix a leaking tire.
I suggested that we head to the north side.
We could all hop in my Jeep to get up to the 'other' north side TH.
Where I was a couple weeks ago.
3 miles in on Military Pass Rd., his rear differential blows up.
So we camp out down at 5000'.
We were planning on skiing the next day (yesterday)
and dealing with the vehicle afterwards.

But after waking up, Roger decides he needs to
deal with the vehicle situation.

7 hours later, we finally get a driver willing to
pick up the vehicle on the dirt road.
:roll:
Don't use Bills towing - he won't drive on the dirt roads
to retrieve your vehicle.
Fred from Yreka was willing, but not very happy.
He said he almost turned around.
Were were at 42N18 - only 2.7 miles from the 97.
If your vehicle breaks down way in there,
YOU ARE SCREWED!!!

We left the vehicle @ J&B's in Weed and I drove them down
to Sacramento, where Seth's girlfriend picked them up
to take them back to Tahoe.
I drove back to Napa Valley. Got home by 9:30pm.

So all I got are some pics.

Roger using my 'infidel' phone to summon help.

Both cell phones died - not much connection anyways.

Some of my favorites.
