The Friends of the Mount Shasta Avalanche Center and the Mount Shasta Ski Park present the 8th annual Shasta Ascension Backcountry Race, a backcountry ski and splitboard race. It follows a traditional ski-mo (ski mountaineering) format of a timed event that follows an established trail through challenging winter alpine terrain while passing through a series of checkpoints. Racers climb and descend under their own power using backcountry skiing equipment and techniques.

Randonee, telemark, and split boards are welcome. Racers should be comfortable climbing and descending advanced terrain.

This year, for the first time, we’ve added categories for the groms! Got a youngster at home that charges harder than you do, (no shame, they all do) get ’em signed up for the Shasta Ascension Junior Course!
