Looks like the second session of Mt Hood’s HCSC rocked! Only a few more sessions to go till photo camp.
With all this snow Mt. Hood has been getting, we’ve all been in snowboard heaven. Anyone noticed a flashy purple bus with “feed me!” written on it cruising around? If you haven’t figured it out, thats the one and only Grease Bus, Portland’s best way up to the mountain. Our friends over at Nike Snowboarding and Salomon Snowboards have been sponsoring these guys since 2001, and we’re pretty stoked on it. Running on bio-diesel, the bus offers skiers and snowboarders roundtrip service from the city to the slopes for only $10! Not only that, the bus is fully equipped with magazines, Clif Bars, and a flat screen TV to get you amped for the day. Next time you’re heading to hood, skip the lonely drive by yourself and hop on the grease bus with a few buddies instead! Head over to the grease bus site to see schedules and events.
The weather was a little less that helpful today. The campers got on the hill and still managed to come back with a few keepers. Christy Chaloux presented her images from the season and wowed the crew. Tim Zimmerman jumped in at the end of the day and started in on digital workflow.
Arrival Day. The camp was sold out 2 months in advance and had a waiting list of 10. The lucky 24 that were able to attend this years session at Mt. Hood and High Cascade Snowboard camp were witness to snowboard history. Snowboarding photog and icon, Bud Fawcett gave the class a history lesson and set the foundation for how snowboarding as we know it today actual started. In many ways, the surf and skateboard industries embrace their heritage. Snowboarding is less historical so it is nice to have Bud to remind us all where we came form as snowboarders. Studionemo is stoked to be a sponsor of the event!
