Don’t get it twisted; High Cascade is the only 100 percent summer snowboard camp out there. Located at the base of Mt.Hood, in Government Camp, Oregon, High Cascade is a snowboarder’s dreamland. On hill there’s a private rope tow for their 22 foot Superpipe, a private rope tow for their main park that’s filled with just about any feature you could possibly dream of, as well as a lift serviced lap park. You really can’t go wrong with High Cascade.

New for this year is the inclusion of The Streets into their main park. You know The Streets at Seven Springs? Well this summer the good folks at Forum decided to bring their baby across the good ol’ US of A and park it at High Cascade. We have a feeling it’s going to get heavy in The Streets.

Every session at High Cascade had a different Signature Session featuring some of the top pros, including: Bode Merrill, Pat Moore, Hana Beaman, Scott Stevens, Chris Grenier, Eero Ettala, and many, many more.

Length: 8-day sessions going from June 15–August 12
Price: $1,975–$2,075 depending on the session and lodging.
Max Campers per Session: 235
Killer Coaches: Johnny O’Connor, Kyle Fischer, Scotty Vine, Alex Rodway, and Ben Bogart.
