It’s midway through session 2 here at High Cascade Snowboard Camp and life couldn’t be better up here, especially the lap park life. The lap park is a snowboard park with jumps, hips, rails, and a chairlift which makes it perfect for hot laps. I took a run through the lap park at the end of today with a go-pro camera attached to my head and here’s a first hand experience of what it was like. Enjoy!
If I may borrow JLA’s slogan with no disrespect, “Craig Kelly is snowboarding!” Sit back, relax and enjoy this clip of the first true snowsurfer snowboarding ever had. The one, the only, the pioneer, Craig Kelly. Here is to you Craig, thank you for showing us the way.

I’m here reporting live from Mt. Hood Oregon. Tomorrow marks the first day of High Cascade Snowboard Camp for the 2010 summer and let me tell you….it’s gonna be a one heck of a summer. I went up the mtn to do some boarding and scope the slopes before camp kicked off and the snowpack is nothing less than absolutely amazing. There is more snow this year than any past summer I can remember, at least thats what it appears. Apparently the winds and the late season snowfall deposited the snow differently than typical years resulting in more coverage and deeper snow on the glacier and ultimately resulting in more slashing and bashing for us boarders! Summer shredding at its finest!
Here it is boys and girls, a sneak peak into June’s issue of Snowboarder Mag set to hit the stands on June 16. Australia’s finest, the “legend” Robbie Walker highlights the magazine complete with a dope cover shot to accompany his contribution as Guest Editor; you’re probably gonna want to read this one.
Congratulations Robbie, keep on it, man!
Check out what Robbie and photographer Mike Yoshida had to say about the shot by following this link. http://www.snowboardermag.com.au/news/feature-stories/2065-behind-robbie-walkers-issue-2-cover-shot
There is still plenty of snow in most parts of Montana. But with the schools out for summer, music festivals in full swing, tourist girls starting to show their pretty faces and temperatures soaring into the 80’s these past few days, we knew we had to get out and get some before it all melts.

Whereever you may be, there’s probably snow close enough to hike to and shred down….go do it. And stay posted for more posts from me throughout the rest of the summer…..I’m going to CHILE!! (in 3 weeks!!!)
On my way up to High Cascade Snowboard Camp for a summer of action packed activities. It’s gonna be the best summer of all time, many posts to come. Its a long trek up to Mt. Hood so we stopped half way. Here’s a photo of our campsite on our way to the ultimate camp site…High Cascade! Camp on!
It looks like Eero Niemela and Robbie Sell got some work done this year. Enjoy!
