Mt. Shasta is forecast to receive 15″ of snow today and tonight.
14,162-foot Mt. Shasta in Northern California is a monster. Shasta rises 10,000-vertical-feet above the surrounding rolling terrain. Mt. Shasta gets the most snow in California.
Mt. Shasta set the US single storm snowfall record at 189 inches of snow (15.75 feet) from February 13th until February 19th, 1959. Shasta is no stranger to big snowfalls and we’re hoping that 2014/15 will be no exception.
While Shasta isn’t skied much during mid-winter, it’s a hot-bed for spring skiing as Shasta holds good snow deep into August most seasons.
Mt. Shasta has 7 glaciers with the longest being.
SNOW LEVELS WILL DROP TO AROUND 5000 FEET WITH 3-6 INCHES POSSIBLE OVER THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS ALONG THE CASCADES BY SUNDAY MORNING. WINDS WILL ALSO DECREASE TONIGHT EAST OF THE CASCADES AND ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE A CONCERN ON SUNDAY.
