A High Country Reopening -- Mount Shasta, CA To Reopen Above 10,000-ft. Tomorrow, May 16th

As mountains start to reopen for some late-season skiing and snowboarding, there are other mountains, though covered with snow, that might attract the climbers as well. After being closed for almost a month, the announcement has been made that Mount Shasta will reopen above 10,000-feet starting tomorrow, May 16th.

As you can see in this Facebook post from the Mount Shasta Avalanche Center, the $25 summit pass and human waste pack are going to be required for all of those looking to venture up the mountain, and rangers will be checking to see if visitors have them.

With that said, please remember that, though rangers will be out there, it is very possible that their operations may still be limited. Along with following social distancing guidelines, make sure you are double careful and double prepared if looking to visit Mount Shasta. Rescue may not be readily available at this time.
