High Cascade is the only 100% snowboard camp. So if you don’t want to share any lips with skiers, this is your spot. High Cascade features two private snowboard parks-one serviced by a chairlift, the other by a tow rope. There’s also a tow rope for the superpipe, so you really never have to hike, unless of course you want to. Did we mention there’s a shit ton of snow up at Mt. Hood right now? Because there is. So if you’re worried about there not being enough snow for you to shred on when you get there, don’t worry…at all.

High Cascade is your place to go if you want to ride features from Bear Mountain, Seven Springs, and Loon, all in one place, and it’s halfpipe is cut by the same guys who cut the Olympic halfpipe. And this summer you will be able to see all the guys who are trying to make the Olympics ride right in front of you, becasue they’re going to be training at High Cascade all summer long.
