Lassen National Park:  Bring your own equipment and enjoy Lassen's vast winter wonderland. If you're new to snowshoeing, considering joining a free ranger-led snowshoe walk offered on weekends in the winter; snowshoes are provided for the program only. The Manzanita Lake Area and the snow-covered Park Highway Route offer gradual climbs with limited avalanche danger, however avalanche terrain exists at the upper end of the Manzanita Creek trail near Loomis Peak. Numerous routes out of the Southwest Area offer trails of greater difficulty, many with spectacular winter views. Most of the primary snowshoe routes in the southwest area pass through frequent avalanche terrain.

Backcountry Skiing/Snowboarding

Lassen's backcountry is recommended only for experienced backcountry skiers and snowboarders. Backcountry travel at Lassen requires entering avalanche terrain. Backcountry users should be avalanche aware, carry avalanche gear, and know how to use it. Lassen does not provide an avalanche forecast for the park. Forecasts for neighboring areas are available from Mt. Shasta Avalanche Centerand Sierra Avalanche Center (Lake Tahoe area).
