Wonderful little mountain! It may only have 3 lifts and not a whole lot of acreage, but Shasta manages to do a lot with a little. Good variety of runs so people of any skill level should be able to find a few favorites. Friendly staff that are very helpful, and a great selection of beer at the lodge. Terrain park is okay, but most of the Big features would be called Medium at other places.
If you go to Shasta, be sure to plan around the weather. Due to its location it can be slushy one day, then get a wonderful overnight powder dump for a great day of riding the next, only to have the temps rise and become slushy again shorty after.
