Welcome to Mt Hood Summer Ski Camps! Like any sports related camp, we provide instruction in ski racing, moguls, freeskiing, snowboard freeride and snowboard racing. Our sessions are a week-long with our main business taking place during June, July, and August, although we also have sessions available in the Fall, Winter, and Spring.
Camp arrival day is on Sunday. On-mountain training takes place Monday thru Friday, and departure day is on Saturday. Roughly 40% of our campers stay more than one session. MHSSC's success is based on over 35 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 and are passionate about their sport. Our coaches are here to teach you and enable you to achieve your goals. On-hill video combined with proven training progressions, allows MHSSC to maximize 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, rockclimbing, challenge course, trampoline, frisbee golf, paintball, hiking etc. After activiites, 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.
