For our freeskiers, and freeride snowboard campers, we have access to Timberline’ Freestyle Training Center (FTC) for our scheduled sessions 3 thru 8. The FTC provides carefully designed features for all ability levels in one giant super-park! These terrain facilities will include a halfpipe spine airbag, progressive jump and transition features, rail and jib features of all shapes and sizes including top-level rail features. Full intermediate level jump line, rail park, and other various features. Comprehensive novice zone including jump, rail, and transition features.Micro landing bag for learning anything from a first air to first freestyle tricks. The facility will be serviceable by multiple surface tows, giving riders quick laps and maximum time on snow. Timberline ski area also has a public terrain park available for our campers for Sessions 1 and 2.

There is an additional fee added to a normal daily lift ticket to access Timberline's Freestyle Training Center. When you register for camp, this $300 fee will be applied during checkout. Again, this additional fee will only be for sessions 3 thru 8. *If you sign up for multiple sessions, the $300 fee is added each of those sessions.

What about Sessions 1 and 2? And Sessions 9 thru 11 in late July plus our sessions in August? Timberline will provide a Public Terrain Park, which will be available Sessions 1 and 2 for sure. And depending on the late-Summer remaining snowpack and Timberline's management decision, they "may" have a public park for some or all of those last 3 sessions we have scheduled. *Keep this in mind, when you are signing up for camp. The public terrain park won't have all the bells and whistles as the Freestyle Training Center park, but it will include a variety of jumps, boxes and rails that will accommodate all ability levels of skiers and snowboarders.

Video: Every day we Videotape your terrain park training. Then you and your coaches get together and figure out what you can work on. Video analysis is one of the most powerful learning tools available to you and will help you achieve your goals faster. At the end of the week, you can purchase a USB Flash-drive or DVD copy of your Video training runs.

Trampoline training: Not sure about trying a new aerial trick? You can first try it out on our campus trampoline. You can first learn a new trick off snow before giving it a try on the mountain the next day. 

Mt Hood info: 11,249 foot Mt. Hood has the longest season of any ski area in North America. Training takes place on the Palmer Snowfield as well as on the Magic Mile chairlift runs in the early summer. With two express quad chairs and 2500' vertical, you have the opportunity to get in a lot of quality training in a short period of time. Mt. Hood weather can be variable with the possibility of mid-winter type conditions popping up at any month of the summer, so come prepared! Typically 80% of the days are sunny skies, but you should come prepared for cool/wet weather. Winter clothing and, rain gear should be brought as well as summer clothing. Layers work best at Mt. Hood. As it warms during the day, you can take the layers off and stow them in your backpack. Sun protection is very important, Skiing at the 8,500 foot level is hazardous to the skin and eyes if not well protected. You must bring a good pair of sun glasses, dark lens goggles and a good quality sunscreen. We also recommend that you train wearing a helmet.
