BagJump

This one doesn’t need much explanation. It’s ridiculous levels of both fun and awesomeness are pretty self-explanatory. One thing to note however is that hitting the BagJump jump is no substitute for learning the fundamentals and board/body control of jumping on-snow. Once you’re comfortable jumping and landing is when the BagJump jumps truly become beneficial.

Digger Zone

HCSC’s parks are maintained by a crew of 18 snowboarders that eat, sleep and breathe snowboarding. They are the first ones on and the last ones off the mountain each day, are dressed primarily in black, and have really nice tans. They are always on hand with rakes, salt, and shovels to keep our parks in pristine condition throughout the day, all day, every day.

Digger Zone
Small Hip

Just like the Big Hip, only smaller (yet still just as hip).

Small Hip
Big Hip

Although this section of our park is constantly changing from summer to summer, and session to session – The Big Hip is a fairly common fixture here. This giant, regular footer’s front-side hip allows you to go as small or as big as your board will allow. FYI – Bode Merrill once double back flipped over the entire thing… it was bananas.

Big Hip
Lower Rails

Here’s another perfect section of our park to master your rail/box game. It’s tucked out of the way next to the super pipe and has a great little jump line next to it if you want to switch things up.

Lower Rails
DDR Box

Originally designed by Bryan Fox when he was a Digger, The DDR box gets it’s name from the video game Dance-Dance-Revolution. This big, wide-open dance floor size box wants to share the next dance with YOU.

Rail Lines

Not even fully depicted here in this map, our series of rail lines offer every classic rail version imaginable: flat bars, down bars, down-flat-downs, pole jams, etc. - all set up in a mellow, fun to ride manner. Lapping these lines on the rope tow allow you to progress naturally.

Rail Lines
Easy Rails

Before stepping to bigger rails you need to lock down the basics. This sprawled out section of our park has tons of different combinations of low wide boxes, pic-nic tables, and easy to ride rails to help you dial in your skills.

Easy Rails
Rail Island

Originally designed during the days of hiking, this up-and-back-down design was intended to maximize the number of features you got to hit per hike. A few combos on the way up, followed by a few combos on the way back down. Even though we ride rope tows now, more boarding is more boarding, so Rail Island is here to stay!

Rail Island
Rope Tow

After 20 years in operation, we realized that people prefer getting pulled up the mountain by machines to walking uphill all day… who knew? We put this revelation to use in 2010 and doubled the quantity of our pulling machines giving us two private rope tows that service both the upper and lower sections of our Main Park.

Rope Tow
Small Jumps

Many resort parks offer scaled down versions of big jumps in their beginner parks. Often times this leads to a jump geometry that’s actually harder to hit with small quick take-offs. We strive to shape jump trajectories and landings so that our jumps aren’t just smaller: they’re easier to learn on.

Small Jumps
Medium Jumps

These air awareness stepping-stones offer the perfect size and shape to dial in all of your tricks, getting them ready to take to the next level. Fully “lap-able” on our private rope tow, you can jump more in one day than most people get to jump in a month.

Medium Jumps
Big Jumps

Whether you’re Chas Guldemond lapping our rope tow learning cab-12 doubles or sending the best feeling method of you’re life, this is the place to do it. For 20+ years theses jumps have offered real-time entertainment, inspiration, and motivation to onlookers from all corners of our park.

Big Jumps
Mini Pipe

The last of the great mini-pipes! As resorts trade their small pipes in for giant ones, or try to pass banked ditches off for mini-pipes, our True-Transition™ 13-foot pipe lives on in necessary glory. This soft-walled beauty is the missing link to helping you figure out transition riding, and it's just begging to be hand-planted in a t-shirt.

Mini Pipe
Super Pipe

Built by Pat Malendowski (builder of the 2002 Olympic pipe and the Burton US Open pipes for the last decade), our soft, manicured, rope tow accessed superpipe just might be the best pipe on Earth to learn in. A far cry from the rock hard ice sculptures of winter, this was the pipe Shaun White chose to polish off his doubles before the 2010 Olympic season. Sessions 1-3 it'll be 22' walls. Sessions 4-6 it will be 18' walls.

Super Pipe
Private Parks Overview
Pic-nic Tables

We're not sure why, but snowboarding on plastic picnic tables is Authorized Awesome™. This zone has all kinds of versions of wide-easy-to-slide plastic.

Pic-nic Tables
Lower Small Jumps

Even more opportunities to get comfortable catching air, learning tricks, and having fun.

Wall Rides

Oh If these walls could talk… Some crazy wall-ride set ups have been know to go down in this zone offering up opportunities for every snowy skate trick simulation you can imagine.

"The pipe is epic and you can't touch the rail garden they have there." -Danny Davis

The Pill Rail

One of the HCSC Main Park's most poular and fun to learn on rails.

DC missile

One of our camp sponsors, DC, shipped us this "replica missile" from the late, great DC Mtn. Lab. If you weren't lucky enough to visit the DC Mtn. Lab back in the day, here's your chance to ride an explosive piece of snowboard history.

Timberline Lodge

Our favorite Historical Monument! During the Great Depression, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal Policies provided the funding and vision for this amazing structure. Finished in 1937, it's awe-inspiring architecture, giant interior timber beams, and general ruggedness are a throwback to a time when humans were a heartier breed. It was also featured as the exterior setting shots for the infamous Stanley Kubrick film, "The Shining".

Hard to imagine that it practically get's buried each winter.

Timberline Lodge
Mid Lap Park

"Jumps are inviting, not all 150 feet and intimidating. Awesome rail set-ups! It's on up there always it seems like." -Jeremy Jones

"For being on a volcano in the middle of the summer it doesn't get any better." - JP Walker

Mid Lap Park
Lower Lap Park

"The Lap Park Rules! Summer Riding Doesn't get any more fun!" - Eero Ettala

Lower Lap Park
Top Lap Park

The Lap Park is designed to be able to flow through in one consistent line, or to pull off to the side after each feature for some coach consulting or a little R&R. The jumps have various size take off options, and offer the perfect rhythm and repetition to get your winter legs back in action.

Top Lap Park
Soft Start Park

This terrain based learning environment is perhaps the easiest place in the world to snowboard for the first time.

Broken into several floors and wings, The Lodge houses the most campers in one building (60 boys between the ages of 13-17) and has the one of the best living areas at camp with the FUEL TV Lounge & Game Room: a pool table, foosball table, ping pong table, video games, a big screen television and more!

Boardwalk

Three separate HCSC chalets in one, each on a different floor, Boardwalk is conveniently perched atop our dining facility where breakfast and dinner is eaten and lunches are packed. Just a ball toss from the dodgeball arena, and the site of the infamous Marshmallow Drop makes this chalet both a great spot to be in Monopoly and at HCSC.

Boardwalk
Whole House

A duplex chalet that is split into two halves (left and right: making it a Whole House) is part of a row of chalets that sit in between The Lodge and Dodgeball Arena. A huge outside porch connects both halves of Whole House making this chalet an exciting place to live.

Whole House

Park Place Chalet

Rivaling next-door neighbor Boardwalk in size, boasting four different floors of living areas, and views of the mayhem of dodgeball from the outside deck areas, there is never a dull moment in this skyward chalet (it's also the closest Chalet to Cobra Dogs btw).

Park Place Chalet
Cobra Dogs

There’s no better place to recharge the beef batteries than a post riding stop at the world famous Cobra Dogs. Try it “Cobra Style” with cream-cheese, kraut and Cobra Sauce, wash it down with a slushie, loosen your boots on the bench and soak up some sunshine.

Cobra Dogs
The Pizza Party

The new kid on the food block of Governement Camp, is sure to delight with personal pizza creations. A joint venture between HCSC, (the one and only) Tim Eddy & Hannah Fuller (of Unicorn Food Fame): The Pizza Party will be serving handcrafted pizzas made from fresh, local, Oregon ingredients. (DYK? Last Fall Tim and Hannah ate over 30 feet of pizza during a great pizza research road trip.)

The Pizza Party
K-Unit

The first floor of Boardwalk plays host to the culinary heart of HCSC, serving up three delicious meals a day that are anything but square.

Govy General

Built on the site of HCSC’s original early 90’s skatepark, this is the spot in town where you can buy pixie sticks, toothpaste, and Mt. Hood postcards where Todd Richards used to skate vert 20 years ago. Too big to be called a convenient store, yet too small to be considered a grocery store, operators Cliff and Judy do an amazing job stocking this place with tons of necessary supplies and delicious surprises.

3 Sisters Coffee

Commonly referred to as The Coffee Lady (after Carolyn who own’s and operates the place), the tiny little Three Sister’s Coffee shop is cute as a button. Looking for a cool treat before heading to the hill? Try her iced coffee made with coffee ice cubes!

3 Sisters Coffee
Charlie's

Government Camp’s long-standing watering hole and restaurant, Charlie’s is the epitome of local authenticity. Rich with Government Camp history, walking through the doors of Charlie’s feels like stepping back in time to the way mountain saloons once were. Although off limits to HCSC Campers under 21, Charlie’s is a fantastic spot for Adult Campers or visiting parents to grab a meal. RIP to Charlie Sr., (Govy’s unofficial mayor) who passed away in the spring of 2010 – we miss you buddy!

Volcano Cones

Granddaughter of the one-and-only, late and great Charlie Sr., Volcano Cone’s owner/operator Sally Butler is quite possibly the sweetest, smiliest ice-cream scooper alive. Believe it or not, there will be several days up on the mountain you’ll be sweatin’ an ice-cream cone and Volcano Cones will be your sweet relief. May we recommend a chocolate lover’s chocolate in a waffle cone?
