lassen peak

Posted by john zazzara on Wednesday, 31 March 1999, at 12:05 p.m.

3-29-99 conditions in lassen park are ICY. The snowpack seems to have consolidated very early this year. Hard snow/ice on the route up to lassen from the chalet make the route easier than it might normally be this time of year. A bit of new snow will change this, but for now one could almost make the whole trip without snowshoes or skis. The road has not been plowed, april 12th will see the plows out in force. Alpinistas headed up to Somewhere_Out_There over the next few weeks may wish to bring crampons/axe.
