A field of 75 participants completed a course that was approximately 4.8 miles long and gained 3,800 vertical feet during Saturday’s 5th annual Shasta Ascension race at the Mt. Shasta Ski Park.

The race followed a traditional “ski mountaineering” format, where racers climbed up the mountain under their own power, passed through a series of checkpoints, and descended either by skis or snowboard.

Cash prizes donated by Timberworks of Mt. Shasta were awarded to the top three overall finishers of both the men’s and women’s divisions.
