Spring Ski Mountaineering Camp

Come learn the basics of ski mountaineering on some of the best ski mountaineering terrain in the lower 48 and ski off Northern California’s most iconic peak!

Our three day ski mountaineering camp will give you the tools you need to safely ascend and descend classic Northwest ski mountaineering objectives. Topics include: steep skinning, basic and advanced snow climbing techniques, steep skiing techniques, whiteout navigation, fast and light camping, and springtime avalanche awareness. Mt. Shasta offers unparalleled springtime corn skiing opportunities and is a great training ground for aspiring ski mountaineers. The camp will culminate in a summit bid with a potential ski descent of the classic Avalanche Gulch route offering up to 7000′ of corn skiing right back to the car.

"I am very happy with my TMG experience. The guides were professional, personable, and extremely concerned about safety. . . I absolutely give highest marks to these guys. If you don't have much Alpine experience, or just want the security of seasoned veterans guiding you up this mountain, then I strongly recommend you sign up with them. Thanks, guys, for a great experience!!"

"What a fantastic experience gaining the summit of a mountain we've gazed on from Portland for 25 years! . . . We learned a great deal, had a ton of fun, felt in very capable hands, and had the reward of summiting on a beautiful clear day. The value of being with a professional, certified, guide and guiding organization was evident throughout. Kudos to the TMG team who were responsive, supportive, and fun to work with every step of the way."

"We booked 2-day overnight program on Mt. Hood with Timberline Mountain Guides. Our guides were great, . . super friendly and reputable. The program did not go as planned due to inclement weather but we still had fun and good experience. The guides were definitely flexible and provided guidance during the trip. I would recommend going with them if it's your first climbing trip on Mt. Hood for sure."
