For our snowboard and freeski campers, we have access to Timberline’s 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.

The Nuts and Bolts of our Snowboard Camp: MHSSC freeride snowboard camp is open to every skill level of snowboarder from intermediate on up to expert level. Each day our snowboard coaches spend time freeriding on the groomed slopes as well as spending time working on jibbing and jumping skills. During your session, our coaches will help you to improve your snowboarding by teaching you the solid fundamentals and correct technique so you can learn to ride with the skill and style you want.  From straight airs to rail grinds, all riders will learn something new. All of our coaches have strong coaching and snowboarding backgrounds, are passionate about their sport, and we are always stoked to ride with motivated snowboarders like you. In the early morning hours, when the snow might be a little icy, training on on that firm snow helps teach you proper stance, balance, and carving skills, which all relate to what you do in the terrain park. As the snow softens, we head to the terrain park for the best freestyle training conditions.

VIDEO: Every day we video your freeriding, park and pipe riding. Then you and your coaches get together and figure out what you need to 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

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.

SKATEBOARDING: After snowboarding. you can improve your skateboarding on our camp quarter-pipe, located at the boy scouts lodge. We also might take a trip to a public skateparks as one of our afternoon activities.
