Featuring a quarterpipe, halfpipe and slopestyle competition, the Abominable Snow Jam brings top international riders like Ross Powers, Gretchen Bleiler, Danny Kass, Leanne Pelosi, Jussi Oksanen, Peter Line, Cheryl Maas, Eddie Wall and Wille Yli Luoma to Mt. Hood for a laid-back event in the hub of the summer snowboard scene.

High Cascade Snowboard Camp is hosting the quarterpipe contest on July 10 and the halfpipe competition on July 11. Legendary park and pipe builder Pat Malendoski and his Planet Snow Design crew will design both the quarterpipe and the halfpipe with help from the crew at High Cascade Snowboard Camp. On July 12, the Abominable Snow Jam wraps up with the slopestyle competition, designed by the park crew at Timberline Resort. Besides yeti and penguin sightings, riders will enjoy fun in the sun with on-snow barbeques, massage therapist treatments and parties at the local Hood hangouts.
