The Mt. Shasta Ski Park’s Rail Jam, scheduled for Saturday, March 26 has been canceled due to unfavorable conditions.

Marketing director Jim Mullins said the Park has been “inundated with snow,” with more than 20 feet at the top of Douglas and 156 inches at the base.

“Last year at this time, we had 156 inches at the top,” Mullins said, adding that this is the most snow he’s seen at the Park in the five years he’s been there.

Though the Ski Park has been operational every day, they were forced to close the Coyote lift because of low visibility, power fluctuations and generally unsafe conditions. The Douglas and Marmot lifts are still running.

Mullins said he hopes the Rail Jam can be rescheduled, but at this point it is canceled.  
“Another storm is coming in today,” said Mullins. “Between today and tomorrow, we’re expecting another 15 or 16 inches.”

The Pond Skim on April 16 is still on, he added.
