High Cascade

Is it too late to sign up? After watching some videos I'm dying to snowboard again!

I send my kid to high cascade. Just so he has week.long instruction on his.level. gets to chill with pros. Has fun in the gov camp lodges with a bunch of other boarders. Skates, paintballing, rafting, general kicking back.... they feed him 3 meals and he rides all he wants to ride for 7 or 8 days. My wife and I will ride a day or two and hike/camp the rest in all the really beautiful Forrest around Oregon and Washington. Its not to late to sign up for their camps either.

Sounds interesting. I would say that my whole family can go, but my dad wouldn't be interested T_T I'm amazing at the park and only 14, my mom is just getting into it, and same with my sister, and my dad skis and refuses to even try park -_-

My son is 11 and is just starting to learn park. He can do slope style ok. Is ok up to like 20' jump.... you would love hcsc. At 14 your a little young to venture out alone on that kind of trip other than doing it camp style at cascade... the camp is pretty awesome. If my wife would do it I would sign us both up for it.... can't wait to get back to mt hood....

Ya, I saw some videos and it looks sick. Good for your son btw. 20' is a good start, I've been riding since 11 and with 2 seasons under my belt I can spin and grab combo the 50' at my park =P It all takes practice, and from what I've seen HCSC look's like a good place for him to learn.

You could.try to.work a deal with your parents. I do it with my son. I "pay" him $10/hr for work around the house above and beyond his chores. He works 200 hours and it pays for his camp. I have his grandma do the same thing but pay him cash for his spending money and he puts it in the bank. He pressure washes the driveway, decks, sidewalks..... pulls weeds, moves rocks, paints, washes vehicles, whatever else he can find so he can work off his hours.....

Haha, that might work =] Their main thing is grades, and with a straight-A report card, and a whole bunch of money from my Graduation/Communion/Birthday...

What Snowolf said. Public park is awesome and is usually not very crowded until the annoying high cascade and windell's kids decide to come through in hoards. No need to pay all that money if you just want to ride.

Sounds good. Now I'm not from around their... is their still snow on the ground, or are their patches of grass and stuff and the whole mountain is slush?
