Not too long ago Phil Casabon came through Mt. Hood for a few weeks to do some summer skiing at Timberline on Mt. Hood... Keep your eyes peeled for an incredible B-Dogx Mt. Hood cut coming down the pipeline this fall. After 3 weeks of summer skiing followed by ice cold river dips, and plenty of hanging we decided it was time for a change of pace.
It seems that since Covid started, every single trailhead in the PNW has been packed. It's great that more and more people are getting out of the city and breathing some fresh air, we encourage it. However, one of the reasons we spend so much time in the woods is to actually separate from the people, which makes the full trail heads a bit of a problem for us.
It's great to see the younger generation growing up and becoming a huge part of the sport that they love so much. We have known Lupe for a long time through skiing and - being based in Mt. Hood Oregon. Pretty much every spring and summer Lupe has come out and set up camp in the woods with some friends to ski on the glacier at Timberline Lodge like many of the others in this Real Ski competition. He also worked at the legendary Windells summer ski camp as a coach inspiring next generation of freeskiers. This summer camp was a big part of forming many of our relationships with in the ski and snowboard community, and we love how they have stuck to their passion and continue to chase their dreams.
