Join us for a high quality summer snowboarding experience on Mt. Hood!
Over the years Mt. Hood has garnered a worldwide reputation as an icon in the snowboarding community. This is a destination that snowboarders have been traveling to to extend their season and share some summer laps with likeminded riders for decades. Part of the Cascade mountain range and located about an hour from Portland, Oregon, we will be able to enjoy two summer snowboarding sessions at Timberline Lodge, including one during the week of the 4th of July! Mt. Hood is the summer snowboarding mecca of North America, and is the best location to get on snow during this time of the year. During our week on snow we will be riding a variety of terrain, and will spend a significant amount of our time riding park in Timberlines Freestyle Training Center (FTC) using their rope tows. We will also have the option to take big laps on both the Magic Mile and Palmer chairlifts (Magic Mile chair features Timberlines public park). I will offer my 20+ years of experience on snow to help with any progression goals you have, and plan to spend most our time on snow riding together in a group progression session type of setting. We will be joined by still photography specialist for Redbull Media and video editor for Board Archive, Yuji Fujiyama. The main goal of the week is to spend time on snow with friends, experience what Mt. Hood has to offer, and have as much fun as possible!
