One of the guys just back from Mt. Hood Summer Ski Camp aka MHSSC, this is a day in the life of a camper at Mt. Hood.
The day begins at 5:45 in the morning, Counselor comes into the room wakes up the campers to get ready for a day of shralpin gnar on the mountain. Eyes struggling to stay open, campers pack up their bags with plenty of layers for the huge change in temperature during the day, throw on their ski pants and head down for breakfast. Breakfast served buffet style, from cereal to waffles to eggs and bacon, whatever you need to get charged up for the day. After grubbin' down on some waffles, it's time to pack up a lunch, which is usually a couple sandwiches, chips, and cookies.
7:00am campers meet with the coaches for video analysis of the previous day, seeing what we need to work on before heading up to the mountain. After video analysis is done, grab the skis throw them in the trailer, hop on the bus and head up to the mountain.
8:30am Freestyle campers meet at smokey the bear, check out the sticker placement. BRAAAAPPPPP
At about 9:00am the public park gets hit up, doing lift served laps with about 15 other campers, a lap takes about 15 - 20 minutes until 11:00am.. By that time, the public park is skied out, super soft, and it's time to head up to the camps park.
12:00pm is lunch time, find a spot on the snow, look out, usually having lunch above the clouds, not bad, right? Grub down quick, then start hiking the different features in the park.
1:30pm it's time to head back to Government Camp, shower up, chill, then do afternoon activities, trampoline being one of the most popular, dialing in tricks to throw down the next day.
6:00pm Dinner time, grubbin down hard on whatever the theme is that night, mexican, italian, burgers, whatever! After dinner is done, campers can chill, play basketball, skate, or play ping pong, lights are out at about 10pm.
Not a bad way to spend a day.
