Climb Koip Peak from the east and ski down it. Camp at Parker Lake below the peak Friday and Saturday nights. Requires excellent physical condition, advanced skiing skills, avalanche training, snow camping, Randonee or Telemark skis, climbing skis, ski crampons, boot crampons, ice axe, helmet, avalanche beacon, shovel, and probe. This is a phenomenal ski descent under good conditions – 5000 feet vertical. Of course, that means a big fast climb is needed to get up as well as down the peak in a day. The recently published guide to skiing the eastern Sierra has great photos.

From a the trailhead at Bunny Flat, we'll spend 2 nights out in an attempt to climb Sargent's Ridge. Though the calendar says this is the first weekend of spring, we'll need to be ready for possible full winter conditions. High winds and cold temperatures are the norm on Shasta, so winter snow camping experience is expected. Ice axe and crampons required, with possible steep snow slopes to traverse or climb. No rope.
