The Avalanche Predictors Of Mount Shasta

Mount Shasta Avalanche Center
Cracks in deep snow on Mount Shasta.

Mount Shasta is gorgeous in the snow.  But dangerous, too, and that's why there's a Mount Shasta Avalanche Center

The center, a joint venture of the U.S. Forest Service and a private nonprofit, works on all things avalanche: observations, forecasts, training, and more.  The skills of the staffers have come in handy of late, with some recent avalanche activity on the big mountain and nearby.  Nick Meyers, Director and Lead Climbing Ranger, pays us a visit.
