Ah, how they grow: what just yesterday seemed a gangly, pimply and socially awkward ski event called the West Coast Session has quickly matured into a full-grown, hairy-chest man event. What’s become Mt. Hood’s signature spring park skiing session is back for a third year, and it’s bigger and better than ever.

Presented by AMPLID and Newschoolers.com, the West Coast Session gathers 25 of the world’s top young park skiers for a four-day film and photo shoot on the unique creations of the Timberline Lodge terrain park crew, documented by a group of equally talented guys behind expensive lenses who will capture all the action for extensive event coverage on Newschoolers.com.

The Session concludes on Saturday, April 25 when the Paintbrush park at Timberline Lodge will be opened to the public for a unique chance to ride the shoot features with the invited skiers. Copious amounts of gear from Amplid, Avalaan, Dakine and Spy will be distributed liberally, and as always, a few informal competitions guarantee to keep things interesting.
