The Summer Olympics are beginning in London, but here on Mt Hood, our minds are stuck on winter sports. We are incredibly stoked to have 2014 Winter Olympic contenders skiing and snowboarding in our park, training, and having fun.

A handful of US Snowboard Slopestyle Team riders are training in our lane this week and the US Snowboard Halfpipe Team is rolling in throughout the next couple of days. The US Freeski Slopestyle and Halfpipe Teams are here training, as well. Three out of these four disciplines are debuting in Sochi in 2014, and we’re excited and honored to welcome these world class athletes to our on hill facilities!

Windells campers have the chance to ride mini, medium and big features alongside US Olympic athletes. Who knows, some of these kids might just be the next Olympians themselves!
