For the sixth consecutive year, the West Coast Session will freeze-frame the state of today’s park skiing style, progression and culture by inviting top young ski talent to sample Mt. Hood’s excellent freestyle and natural terrain for five days and kick off the Oregon spring ski season in style.

The public jam on Sunday, May 6th invites skiers of all ages and ability levels to join the West Coast Session crew for a fun-filled day in the Timberline terrain parks. The public day features an on-hill BBQ hosted by local ski shop Hillcrest Sports, contests and giveaways for participants, and a number of unique terrain features to challenge all comers.

From May 7th - 10th the invited athletes and media will session next-level terrain features at Timberline and Windell's Camp in a closed photo and video shoot, the products of which will be released for online at and also through international media partners.

The West Coast Session thanks its sponsors and partners for supporting us for another year: Buff, Amplid, Auviq, Timberline, Windell’s Camp, Camtrol, Hillcrest Ski Shop, and Vital Films.
