Ski Bowl Parking: c. 1960

The history of lift-serviced downhill skiing on Mt. Shasta began in 1959 with the creation of the old Mt. Shasta Ski Bowl, located at the end of Everitt Memorial Highway. It was situated above treeline and was routinely plagued with white-outs, avalanches and road closures....but not on the day pictured above, when cars filled the parking lot.
