June Snowboarding Trip

I am thinking of planning a trip sometime in the month of June to go anywhere in the U.S. (except Alaska unless i can plan it for cheap) for 3 days or maybe 1 week depending on what works better. What I want to know is what resorts are open or what areas will have a decent mountain with snow still on it and can be accessed without a splitboard in June?

you may have to reserve a spot at Hood in advance, IIRC (i was out there over Memorial Day weekend about 5 years ago) after Memorial Day they have limited public lift tickets available. That policy may have changed though, so it would be best to call ahead & make sure if you go there you can still get lift tickets!

burtonavenger was one of the sponsors for the adult week at Woodward/Copper last year he's got a few posts on his site about it, otherwise yeah I am sure there are people on this forum who have been to that, HCSC, or CoC.

i'm thinking about doing the adult week at Woodward next summer, would've gone this year but wife decided it would be a good time to have a baby instead of sending Dave to summer camp.

Just curious...where is there to snowboard in the US during the summer months?

I am new to snowboarding and got the bug...so I am itching to snowboard again and thought I would have to wait til November/December at the earliest. I also saw that Argentina/Chile/Austria have snow during our summer months.

In the US, Mt. Hood is the best bet for summer snowboarding. However, if you're not against earning your turns, there are some great hike and ride spots in Washington. And last year, Crystal Mountain (WA) ran lifts into July, and it's looking like they might be doing it again this year with how much snow we have gotten in just March alone.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

We take my son up to hood in the summer to high cascades at mt hood. This will be year three for him. We usually board 2-3 days while we are there, the day before his camp, the last day of his camp and the day after... We always camp at mt hood village rv resort in their tent sites. That place is awesome.

My son loves high cascades and learns a lot every year. The staff and coaches are awesome. My wife and I are gonna hike up hood this year for some extra turns...

I'm looking at the MHSSC camp (Snowboard Camps) right now and was wondering if anyone has been to it or heard good things about it because it is $800 cheaper than any other camp and still seems like it has alot to offer.
