Description
 
Lassen Peak California Ski Patch Silver on Black:
Lassen Peak is the southernmost active volcano in the Cascade range, second to Mt. St. Helen's in recent volcanic activity. At just under 10,500ft,  Lassen is by no means a huge peak, but it consistently gets some of the deepest snow pack in the West (CA for certain) due to it's location. This makes it an ideal destination for spring backcountry skiing.
Lassen Peak has the highest known winter snowfall amounts in California.

There is an average annual snowfall of 660 in (1,676 cm), and in some years, more than 1,000 in (2,500 cm) of snow falls at its base altitude of 8,250 ft. (2,515 m) at Lake Helen. The Mount Lassen area receives more precipitation (rain, sleet, hail, snow, etc.) than anywhere in the Cascade Range south of the Three Sisters volcanoes in Oregon.[6] The heavy annual snowfall on Lassen Peak creates fourteen permanent patches of snow on and around the mountain top, despite Lassen's rather modest elevation, but no glaciers. Lightning has been known to strike the summit of the volcano frequently during summer thunderstorms.

Before the arrival of white settlers, the areas surrounding Lassen Peak, especially to its east, south, and southeast, were the traditional homeland of the northeastern Maidu American Indians. Lassen Peak was named in honor of the Danish blacksmith Peter Lassen, who guided immigrants past this peak to the Sacramento Valley during the 1830s. The trail that Lassen blazed never found generalized long-term use because it was considered unsafe. This trail was replaced by the Nobles Emigrant Trail, named for the guide, William Nobles, which linked the Applegate Trail in northwestern Nevada to the northern part of the Sacramento Valley.
