It's that time of year again! For most people, summer means flip flops, pool parties and BBQs... all good things of course. But July always means one thing in The Great Northwest: shred camp is in session at Timberline on Mt. Hood. It's the best month of the summer up on the glacier, as the winter-like storms that linger into June are history and there's still tons of snow left before the inevitable August melt off, especially this year. Mt. Hood didn't miss out on the record-setting snowfall season across the West Coast this winter, and as a result there is a very deep base for this time of year. Snowboarders are still enjoying full laps all the way to the bottom, and the amount of jumps, jibs and halfpipes on the mountain is bigger than ever before.
