SUMMER: Amidst Northern California’s endless forests and lofty mountains you will find a one of a kind alpine site to stage your private or corporate event. The Mt. Shasta Ski Park is located on a flank of glacier-laden Mount Shasta, with it’s lofty 14,000 feet summit the second highest peak in the Cascade Range. The panorama is dominated by the icy beauty of the “mountain” and then extends to include the magnificent silhouettes of the Warners, Mount Lassen, Castle Crags, Trinity Alps and Mount Eddy. During the summer even the climate has a special appeal at the ski park. While the Vale of California is sweltering in the full summer heat cool soothing mountain air descends the slopes of Mt. Shasta on a daily basis thus dropping the temperature just enough to bring you a much desired relief. Finally, our resort is ideally located midway between Sacramento and Portland and is easily accessible – only 19 miles from Interstate 5.

These unforgettable natural settings are echoed by the efficient layout of the resort’s base area and the human element presented by our staff who takes pride in providing outstanding customer service. All these complementary ingredients can be yours to stage your own unforgettable event. You and your party can rent a portion or our entire facility infrastructure and some or all of our outstanding services. Choose among such services as catering, chairlift rides or simply lazing on one of our patios.Whether you plan an indoor wedding with 100 guests or an outdoor concert with up to 5,000 visitors or any visitor capacity in-between we have the ideal facility to host your event.

Always affordable and easy to get to. Traveling north or south on Interstate 5 take Exit 136 unto Hwy 89. On Hwy 89 drive 6 miles east, on summit turn left into Ski Park Hwy and drive 7 miles to the resort.
