Shastina is the 12,330-foot subpeak due west of Mount Shasta’s main summit. Shastina contains an impressive crater with three separate lakes. The south, east, and north rims of the crater provide great vantage points for viewing the crater below or the Whitney Glacier and the main summit above. March, April, and early May are the best times to ski/snowboard from Shastina’s unique summit.
