Race Update

It’s official: The Shasta Ascension will be held at the Bunny Flat Trailhead next Saturday, January 20th. Due to a limited snowpack, we will not be able to hold the race at the Mt Shasta Ski Park this weekend. An active weather pattern is forecasted for the week with a small break on Saturday which is looking promising for the race. Check for updates and a route description at and on our FaceBook page.

Wax your sticks, dust off your costumes and we will see YOU there!
