Today, 6/15/2011, marked the very first day of High Cascade’s 2011 summer season! While it may not have been the sunniest first day in camp’s history, it sure was one of the best! Campers started to arrive at HCSC around noon.
While it might have been a little misty and rainy, it did not damper the fun everyone had all day. Youth Campers™,
and Adult Campers™
started off the day by checking in with the nurse, and then finding out which Chalet™ they were staying in, or grabbing their bags and heading into the lodge.
Once everyone was checked in, it was time to call the parents, tell them they all made it safe, and grab a sweet HCSC camper t-shirt!
After checking in, it really was up to you to do what ever you wanted to do. Some people went to Cobra Dogs.
While other people went to the Demo Center™, to try out some of next years’ brand new gear.
The Demo Center™ was really popping off today! People were trying out and demoing all different types of product.
No matter if it were boots, boards, or bindings that people were looking for, the Demo Center™ had it ready and available.
We had coaches in there all day, such as Arbor Snowboards rider Scotty Vine helping people find, and set up the perfect board, just for them.
If demoing gear wasn’t your thing, well there were also fierce Ping-Pong
and Foosball tournaments throughout the entire day!
Because of the rain, our arrival Barbecue was not held at the street course like it normally is. Rather, we had a delicious Barbecue
Boardwalk is where we eat all of our meals every other day during the session.
After dinner, everyone, Campers and Staff, made their way down to the lodge for all camp Orientation™.
During Orientation™, everyone was able to go over all of the rules of camp, as well as meet the Signature Sessioners™. This session the Signature Sessioners™ are Scott Stevens,Jesse Burtner, Jed Anderson, as well as special guest Jake Kuzyk. All of those guys came into Orientation™ and introduced themselves.
The Campers were also introduced to The One Life Crew. The One Life Crew which consists of Sarka Pancochova, Chanelle Sladics, Celia Miller, and Kjersti Buaas, are all about promoting healthy eating. So because of them all of the food that we are going to be serving is going to be 100% organic.
The only Signature Sessioner™ who was not in attendance at Orientation™ was Salomon pro-rider Chris Grenier. But he had a very, very special reason for missing the meeting. That reason was game 7 of the NHL Stanly Cup. His beloved Boston Bruins were in a do or die situation, and they luckily pulled through. Watch Chris’s reaction to a goal in the 2nd period:

It really was an awesome start to the 2011 summer. Tomorrow is the first day On Hill, and with a record breaking snow year, it looks like it’s going to be an awesome one! Check back tomorrow to see what crazy things went down on and off the hill!!
