HCSC Session 1 Update
Lib Tech Utah Ripper Ted Borland reports from Mt Hood:
Session 1 at High Cascade is now officially in the books. We saw some crazy weather this past week up here at hood, but that can usually be expected during the first few weeks of summer anyways. Even though it was tough to see more than about 20 feet at times, the campers stuck it out and rode all day, every day throughout the session. On-hill we’ve got about 15 new rails to ride, a new rope-tow next to the pipe, an airbag, and plenty of different sized jumps and features for all abilities to ride. Every day off hill the campers broke in the new bowls, new trampolines, and the new foam pit until it was dark. Kids were also able to demo all of the new lib boards like the always popular Skate Bananas, the T Rice, and the Burtner Box Scratchers.
Once the weather cleared we were finally able to fully enjoy all of the new on-hill stuff that camp has this summer. Campers learned all kinds of new tricks on the rails, with three main sections of progression lines to choose from. The airbag was obviously a big hit, as campers safely chucked themselves into the bag without fear. Because the jump to the bag has the same specs as the medium jumps, it was easy to transfer the new tricks to the real thing. The jumps were sessioned a whole lot, with the new double line of medium tables and the big jump easily accessed from the top rope tow. The big jump saw a lot of action as always, but the trick level was a little higher than past years(maybe thanks to the airbag?) as people like Gnu rider Jake Knigge went for all kinds of crazy double corks. All in all we had a great first session, and I think it was just a preview for what we’ll get into the rest of the summer up here at Hcsc. For more info and updates check out www.highcascade.com
