Brokeoff Mountain, CA - 2/10/08 6 Years, 9 Months ago  
Access from Reno, NV
US 395 North
CA 36 West
CA 89 North to Lassen Volcanic National Park
Drive Time: ~2:20 min

Run:
I skinned up CA 89 briefly, then west towards Brokeoff Mountain and finally up its south face. I found the skinning difficult in steep sections because the snow was still frozen. I had a good view of Mount Shasta to the north and Mount Diller and Lassen Peak to the northeast. However, the sun was obscured by clouds and the winds high, so I abandoned the idea of waiting for softer snow. I descended the south face, then paused above a southeast-facing chute leading off of the face. Feeling good that I had just made controlled turns on the frozen snow, I decided to descend the steep chute. I measured the slope angle near the top to be 55 degrees and lower down to be 47 degrees. Upon reaching the apron, the snow softened and I was able to make big, fast turns.
Elevation: ~2528'
Distance: 6 miles
Time: 3 h

Nice Kalet! Lassen is sick. Check the NPS every once in a while in april, and hit the N side from the Devastated area. its a quick 2-3 hrs to the summit and great continuous descent. Haven't skiied Brokeoff, but those N couloirs look pretty serious.

It doesn't look like there are any continuous lines down Brokeoff's north face.
