Mt. Hood Summer Camps
Summer on-snow camps are a valuable opportunity to work on fundamental skills and to be immersed in all the performance domains of alpine skiing (technical, tactical, physical, mental, equipment preparation, team dynamics and culture). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated safety and health protocols, our summer camp offerings are subject to change.
We have received some more clarity from Timberline Ski Area at Mount Hood and have updated our camp plans based on the latest information. There is an outside chance for Colorado training in June, we’ll know by Tuesday, May 26. Due to state and local regulations, we will not be able to provide team transportation or lodging for these camps. There will be a Zoom meeting for parents and athletes interested in summer camps on Tuesday, May 26, at 5:00pm. Click here to join the meeting. Camp pricing will be posted on May 26.

PLANNING YOUR TRIP TO MOUNT HOOD
Our lodging partner for many years at Mount Hood has been Collins Lake Resort located in Government Camp. Their chalet units include garages for tuning and are well-appointed with full kitchens and laundry. When we learned that we could not provide team lodging this summer, they graciously provided a full refund of our reservation. We recommend staying here, check them out at www.collinslakeresort.com. As of May 22 there is plenty of availability. We suggest waiting on June reservations until we’ve confirmed that we don’t have a Colorado training option.
