The adults are all in the same house. Last year it was 3 bedrooms and a LOT of bunk beds. I just brought a sleeping bag and put it on top of the bed. No way in hell I was getting under those sheets. I heard they did some renovations so I don't know if it will be the same this year (Im still bringing a sleeping bag).

The mtn is split up. There's the public area, High Cascades area (if they're in session) and windell's area. You can hit either the public park or the windell's park, it's totally up to the group.

And there's one fridge in the house. What I did last year was buy the beer I wanted then stocked the utter shit out of the fridge with beer I wouldn't drink (PBR, Coors, Bud etc). It cost me a decent amount but it was well wroth it

Oh and as for grouping up on the mtn, it's all based on skill level. I was in the park newbs group last year (and will be again this year haha). Honestly, that was the biggest group and even in that it was pretty varied in terms of ability. There was another group that I didn't see much of on the hill. Mostly because they threw down 9's off of 45ft jump like it was breathing.

I'm pretty sure if I attempted a 9 off of a 45ft jump the one thing I would not be doing at the end is breathing!

Fate will likely have me in the newb group as well with ya since I didn't bother with park only till this year attempting it. I can get air with a lot of speed off noels grab board for a few seconds before landing but it's nothing more than straight air. For 180's and such, still getting that down for the most part and moving to 360's, whatever else comes along. All mountain is a breeze regardless of terrain, park is another matter. Only way I'd do that 45ft jump would be if I drank enough beforehand to get my typical dontgiveashit approach and fly off it kissing my ass goodbye.

So it sounds like a pack that takes turns going off the feature with an instructor watching overhead and critiquing them afterwards I take it.

As for the booze, while I admit Coors Light ain't much, in a can it's actually pretty damn good. What can I say, gotta stoop to new lows when you go to race tracks since no glass is allowed, learn new things everyday. It don't taste too bad in a can, but in a bottle it ain't got jack shit. Oops, secret is out, guess I look forward to some of those stocked in the fridge but no worries. I drink fast enough through them to get the real stash

Guess now I need to figure out the P.I.T.A. process to bringing a sleeping bag as well with two other bags for the trip, yee freaking haw.

Well according to the rep I talked to I prolly would get signed to the intermediate group since they don't base skill level there solely on freestyle (even though it's mostly a freestyle camp). So I guess that gives me the impression if you went in the newb group it would be putting up with a few people that may be snowboarding their first time and may slow the group down? Since I can take on any terrain regular and do blue and some blacks switch, unless I object they'll toss me in that group. What do you think Mooz? There's always time after training to raise hell but would be nice to ride with someone from the forum anyhow.

I've never heard of any such thing. Everyone who was newish to freestyle was in the same group and they were all quite capable of riding any terrain. The people who were not so new to freestyle were in a totally different group. As far as freeride terrain goes, I can handle damn near anything. Even mid atlantic mogul sheets.

I figured as much, not sure why the rep said that then. Meh, I'll figure it out when I get there.

hey everyone, long time no speak haha... well I'm planning on hitting Hood around that time myself although not in the camp ( you lucky bastards haha), gotta keep spending to a minimal being laid off lol!

but anyway I've got a friend who lives in portland and he owns a house on the Mtn, however he does rent it out, so I'm trying to see if it would be free for occupation, and even if it isn't I'll stay w/ him in the city.

You guys are going june 16th correct?

I've never been to Hood so any tips/pointers on what the best deals are would be appreciated. I want to ride for a week and as far as public terrain goes what would you recommend? Timberline or Hood Meadows? Or am I an ass and there is a way better place haha

Well if you decide to go down on the 16th, even then only people in the camp are allowed on the camp training grounds so we wouldn't be able to meet up until afterwards unless from what Mooz mentioned, the groups decides to go onto public terrain. Camp doesn't start until the 17th anyhow, 16th is the intitiategetshitintoplacedrinkyourassoff date. Well drinkyourassoff is pretty much relevant for every night anyhow, at least in my case.
