11,235 foot Mt. Hood is North America's only year round resort. There are other resorts out there that have late seasons, but they don't generally make it to July and August. This is THE place to come for on-snow training in the summer. Those American ski and snowboard athletes you watch in the X-games and Winter Olympics? Almost all of them have spent time developing their skills on the slopes of Mt Hood in the summer months. 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.

Some general guidelines: Mt. Hood weather is highly variable with mid-winter conditions can occur at any time of the summer, so be prepared. Winter clothing, rain gear, and racing equipment should be brought as well as summer clothing. Layers work best at Mt. Hood. As it warms during the day, you'll 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 #15 (or higher) sunscreen. We also recommend that you train wearing a helmet. .

For our ski and snowboard racers there is consistent hard to grippy snow conditions, salted courses, no pressure of upcoming races, outstanding coaches, daily video analysis and good weather making Mt Hood the perfect learning environment. One week at MHSSC can be equivalent to one season of training at your home hill!
