Countdown to the 100th Anniversary of the Eruption of Lassen Peak

May 22, 2015

​On May 22, 1915, an explosive eruption at Lassen Peak, the southernmost active volcano in the Cascade Range, devastated nearby areas and rained volcanic ash as far away as 200 miles to the east. This explosion was the most powerful in a 1914-17 series of eruptions that were the last to occur in the Cascades before the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens. Lassen Peak is the largest of a group of more than 30 volcanic domes erupted over the past 300,000 years in Lassen Volcanic National Park.”
Honoring this event 100 years later is the vision of Lassen-Feather River History Month this coming May.

SnowShoe Walks

Lassen Volcanic National Park

Saturday and Sundays, January 3 through April 5, 2015
Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center | 1:30 pm

Ranger-led snowshoe walks are an excellent way to learn or practice snowshoeing techniques and explore Lassen in its winter form. Route and distance varies depending on group ability and fitness. At the beginning of each snowshoe walk, a ranger will demonstrate how to put on snowshoes and how to move around. Once the basic techniques are covered, the group heads out into the snow and the adventure begins! Snowshoes are provided, a $1 donation is requested to cover maintenance costs. Reservations are required for organized groups, but not for families or individuals. Walks are open to those eight years of age and older; children in carriers are not allowed due to safety concerns.
