Families come out every year to enjoy the crisp, fresh snow of the Shasta Cascade Region for downhill skiing or snowboarding. Mt. Shasta Ski Park offers 425 acres of various trails groomed for the beginners to the more advanced skiers or snowboarders with terrain parks, half pipes and chair lifts. After a day of hitting the slopes head into the town of Mt. Shasta for a relaxing meal, browse unique book & gift stores and coffee shops, while enjoying picturesque view of the mountain. http://skipark.com/guest-services/rentals For something a little more off the beaten path and less crowded, Coppervale Ski Hill, near Westwood offers groomed trails for various skill levels.

Snowshoeing is a great way to enjoy the winter landscape where one can explore hundreds of miles of trails. Some snowshoeing areas are within the Lassen Volcanic National Park, and Lassen National Forest,  http://www.nps.gov/lavo/planyourvisit/snowshoeing.htm, just to name a few, where they offer guided snowshoe walks throughout the winter season. Other popular areas are Plumas- Eureka State Park, Burney Flat on Mt. Shasta, and Castle Lake.

The range of scenery that one is exposed to along this trail is incomparable, unforgettable and extraordinary but best for experienced snowshoers. A traverse of Lassen Volcanic National Park would be the highlight of any winter season for experienced snowshoers.

If strolling through the backcountry with little or no company is a goal, then this route promises to deliver. Naming this route the Manzanita Creek Trail can be a tad deceptive as the path avoids the namesake creek for all but the final stretch of the nearly 5-mile journey to the head of the canyon below Crescent Cliff.
