2018 SUMMER TRAINING PROGRAM
If you have not yet been to one of our summer camps or have ever set foot on the mountain in the summer time let this year be the year that you do. It may go against what feels like common sense but the harder, more frozen snow on Mt. Hood in the summer time can actually lend more favorably to acquiring new skills even more to the softer, mid-winter variety even all the way into August!!
This summer season we are expanding on our partnership with the Mt. Hood Academy and Race Team to take the next step in our skills based progression. By joining forces last season we were able to apply our well designed summer-long curriculum and mix it with the pace of neighboring athletes as well as the input from neighboring coaches. The top coaches from each Team will again combine to give a unique experience on Mt. Hood. If you want to be a part of building a bigger community while refining the skills you have as well as gaining new ones this is the place to be. Join us to train with familiar coaches as well as hear a new voice as well as old friends while making new ones.
All camps will have a lodging option that we encourage you to participate in to get the full effect. Pricing details will be available soon.
