There are many backcountry boarding, skiing, and snowshoeing spots available on Mount Shasta. Many local guidebooks, such as The Mt. Shasta Book by Andy Selters and Michael Zanger or Fifty Classic Backcountry Ski and Snowboard Summits in California: Mount Shasta to Mount Whitney by Paul Richins, Jr., provide information about hiking, climbing, skiing, or snowboarding on the mountain.
