Mt.Hood

Mt.Hood in Oregon will be running camps all through the summer on their 1.5km terrain park which will also feature a halfpipe. Things start getting decidedly sketching towards the end of the summer, so it's probably best to go there early to enjoy the best conditions.

Camps cost around $1000 for a week and include transfers, accomodatiom, meals, lift pass & tuition. It's mainly geared towards the young groms, but adults are welcome and catered for.

Windells also run summer camps here, same kind of deal that the resort themselves run, but they cost a good $1600 for 8-days. However they have their own private tows and park which includes an airbag jump, and you can expect some tuition from the likes of Louie Vito, Chas Guldemond, Danny Kass etc
