The new ski resort on Mount Shasta is relatively low on the south side, less vulnerable to avalanches than the original one at the end of the Everitt Highway. It is reached from the pass on Highway 89 named Snowmans Hill, via Ski Park Highway.

A vast forest, mostly of Jeffrey pine and red fir, spreads across the south slopes of the huge mountain. It supports a sustainable forestry, both on private and Forest Service land. I have found it an ideal place for casual camping, no facilities but lots of solitude.
