Join us for an all inclusive summer snowboard trip at Mt. Hood!

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. Part of the Cascade mountain range and located about an hour from Portland, Oregon, we will be able to enjoy one week of summer snowboarding at Timberline Lodge.

During our week on snow we will be riding a variety of terrain with access to the entire resort, including Timberlines exclusive rope tow parks and airbag jump in their Freestyle Training Center (FTC). We will also have the opportunity to take big laps on both the Magic Mile and Palmer chairlifts (Magic Mile chair features Timberlines public park). We will be riding Timberline and the FTC during the first possible week to ensure the best conditions of the summer.

I will offer my 20+ years of experience on snow to help with any progression goals you have, and plan to spend each morning on snow riding together in a progression session type of setting with the ability to freeride the resort at anytime.

For 2024 we plan to make the hike up to the iconic Illumination Rock for the summer solstice on Thursday June 20th. The snowboard community will be out in full force enjoying the longest day of the year for what has become fondly known as the solstice party. We also plan to spend an afternoon exploring the lush forests of Oregon, with a short hike to a beautiful location known as Little Hawaii.

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!

Questions you may have

What airport do I fly into?

You should plan to fly into the Portland airport (PDX) on June 16th, 2024. It would be best to arrive in the late morning, however we will do our best do accommodate your arrival time and minimize time at the airport. Please book your departure flight at 10am or later to ensure a comfortable departure day.

Is transportation to and from the airport included?

Yes, a shuttle to and from the airport will be provided.

What's the weather like?

In June, you can expect varying temperatures between the morning and afternoon. It can be in the 30's in the morning and up to the 50's by lunchtime. I typically start the day with a hoodie, midlayer, or light jacket and shed layers to just a long sleeve t-shirt later in the day.

How are the summer snow conditions?

You can expect conditions similar to spring snow at your local resort. It is common to encounter somewhat firm groomers for the first lap of the day down to the FTC that quickly become slushy as the day progresses.

What should my ability be?

We suggest that you be able to confidently ride BLUE and BLACK terrain to ensure you can comfortably navigate the slopes on the volcano. Terrain park experience is helpful, but not required. Beginner and progression features will be available.

What board should I bring?

We suggest bringing your favorite park, or freestyle friendly board that you would like to ride in the FTC. An all-mountain board would also work well on Mt. Hood, however we do plan to spend a significant amount of time riding freestyle features. You do not need to bring a directional or powder snowboard.
