The above photo was shot on May 30, 2015 on Mount Hood, Oregon. We are looking top-notch for summer.

We are counting down the days to summer camp! Summer 2015 Sessions are just around the corner and our jumps for joy have turned into NBA height leaps! The sun has been out, the sunscreen has been applied, and Mount Hood is looking as incredible! With the endless efforts of the grooming team at Timberline Resort, and Joel Palmer’s mid 1800s discovery, we are looking top-notch for Summer 2015.

Doing our best to patiently wait for the arrival of our campers and the grand opening of The Lab, we have been cruising through our demo center, strategically planning each and every day to ride every single 2016 ski and board (you know, all those new shapes and camber options you’ve been seeing all over the internet), put our feet in every single pair of new boots, try some new poles, and so much more!

With the rippers from Lib Technologies coming in for our Session 1 #TeamTakeovers, you know that there’s going to be endless action both on Mount Hood and on campus in Welches, OR from June 16-23, 2015.
