Kids Freeride Camp – Ages 7 to 14 The safety of our team and guests is our highest priority at Mt. Hood Meadows. Please be advised that due to the continually evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, some Freeride team elements may need to be adapted in accordance with the latest guidance from public health officials and agencies. Please watch this page and the email you signed up with for any updates. Our 3-Day Youth Freeride Camps are offered during Winter Break, Oregon Spring Break and Washington Spring Break. Camps for the 2021/22 season will be held December 20-22, December 28-30, March 21-23 and April 4-6. Our 3-Day Freeride Camps consists of five hours of coaching with an hour break for lunch each day (9 AM - 3 PM). We recommend all camp participants are booted up and ready to go by 8:30 AM - an area in the North Lodge, formerly the SnoBlaster Room, will be available to camp participants and parents to assist with this process. Coaches and campers will meet outside of the North Lodge at 8:40 AM to form groups and will depart promptly at 8:50 AM for first chair. Being early is the best way to not miss out on first chair! Our camps are a great opportunity to take all-mountain skiing and snowboarding to the next level. Whether you want to explore our steep and varied terrain, are looking to enter our terrain parks for the first time, or are considering joining the Meadows Freeride Team, these camps are a great way to progress your skills. This camp is open to participants ages 7 to 14 who are Intermediate to Advanced level skiers or snowboarders – Intermediate level is defined as snowboarders capable of fluidly linking heel-side and toe-side turns on all blue terrain and skiers able to fluidly link parallel turns on all blue terrain. Groups will be split up by age and ability level. Camp focuses will vary depending on the conditions of the day; topics often covered during camp include all-mountain skiing and snowboarding, park safety and etiquette and deep snow techniques. Reservations are required 48 hours prior to the first day of all camps.
