Going with a friend to climb Shasta next week, if weather forecast improves. Gonna take avalanche gootch. Just wanted to get some insight on how unconsolidated the snow will be around this time. Snowshoe tails needed? Also want to get an idea of summit day itinerary. I want to summit and be back at helen lake no later than noon to avoid warm snow fall. Please advise this rook. Thanks!
