Default Mt. Hood HCSC 2011

Just returned from a trip to High Cascade Snowboard Camp with some of my buddies. All I have to say is... WOW! They had the most snow they'd had in years, and both timberline and palmer lifts were open (no hiking :P). There was something like a 50 inch base at the top of timberline, which was hugely impressive, especially for July 1st. Riding in the summer is just epic: 50 degrees+, barely a cloud, perfect (though it did rain a few days during the week, no matter, it ended well). I saw many people hiking to the true top of the mountain, but the camp wouldn't let me. I only wish I could have stayed to get a glimpse of Government Camp from the top... Anyways, save that for another trip. Here are some photos of the private camp park, terrain, etc. Boy just being there made me want to move the the PNW. Enjoy!

oh and also, just for bragging rights....


P.S. High Cascade really was amazing. They're great at what they do: Coaching snowboarding, providing perfect opportunities to improve your riding, building a perfect terrain park, giving access to endless off hill activities, and the list goes on and on. The signature session "Friends Crew" was legendary. There are just too many things to post here, I could go on for days. Authorized Awesome!
