JUMPS, BOXES, & RAILS...WE HAVE IT ALL! Can't do a 360? Having trouble landing that 720? Our coaches can help! MHSSC operates it's own private park for freeskiers and snowboarders. The terrain park is shaped every day by our diggers to accommodate the campers’ individual learning goals. There are features for every level to provide a steady progression through to the week’s end. We have 3 large jumps of 20', 40' and 50' as well as a progression of small ones to help get the beginning freeskier into the air. We have a total of 13 rails, boxes and jib features to pick from; starting with the smallest ones early in the session and progressing to the bigger twisted ones later in the week. If you want to learn how to do rails and challenge yourself on a progression of rails and jumps, then our park on "Lower Cuervo" is the spot to be.

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 copy of your video. 

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. 

11,235 foot Mt. Hood is the only 12 month 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 is highly variable with mid-winter conditions likely at any time, 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.
