Things to bring:
Base layer: clothes to layer under the outerwear (thermal/long sleeve shirts, leggings/joggers)
Socks: athletic socks that go to the knees are best
Hair style: something that will fit into a helmet
Van activity: we have 1.5hr drive so bring something to do
Water bottle: long trip up and back in the van
Run of show for a Trip:
On a typical trip we take 2 passenger vans from Portland up to Mt Hood with 15-20 participants and 6-10 volunteers. On every trip, each student receives a minimum of 4 hours of small-group or one-on-one coaching from trained Snowdays coaches.
We meet at our partner location at 8am, enjoy some snacks and get our outerwear, helmets and goggles. After that we hit the road and arrive at Summit Ski Area around 9:30am to get the participants equipment at the Summit rental shop.
We do intros and stretch as a group.
Participants are broken into groups by ability level and paired with coaches.
We ride from 10am until we take a break for lunch.
Then we head back out to finesse our skills until about 3pm when we head home.
Each student is outfitted with equipment and clothing 100% donated from both individuals and supporting brands (used and new). Many thanks to Airblaster Outerwear, Smith Goggles and Sandbox Helmets – our primary equipment sponsors.
