Welcome to Mt Hood Summer Ski Camps! Like any sports related camp, we provide instruction in ski racing, moguls, freeskiing, and snowboard freestyle. Our week-long sessions typically run from early June to late August.

Camp arrival day is on Sunday each week. On-mountain training takes place Monday through Friday, and departure day is on Saturday. Roughly 40% of our campers stay two or more session. MHSSC's success is based on 40+ years experience on the Palmer Glacier.

During your time at camp, our coaches will help you to improve your skiing or snowboarding skills by teaching you the fundamentals and correct technique required for success. Your goals will be assessed and a safe and successful progression will be planned for you to achieve the best results. All of our coaches have strong coaching and skiing/snowboarding backgrounds, are passionate about their sport, and are here to enable you to achieve your goals. Daily video combined with proven training progressions, allows our campers to maximize their learning and skill acquisition.

When the lifts close for the day, we begin phase 2 of the day: Afternoon activities. Our afternoon program is just awesome. Pick one each day from white water rafting, rock climbing, skateboarding, trampoline, cliff jumping, hiking etc. After activities, we serve dinner, have an evening group meeting, a few evening activities, then bed time. Wake up the next day and do the same thing all over again.

We provide everything during your stay at camp, including picking you up and dropping you off at the Portland International Airport (PDX). Check out the rest of the camp website to fill in some of the particulars. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact the camp office: 503-337-2230. Email:
