All-Inclusive PackageThe accommodations included in the 'All-Inclusive' package are shared rooms in what we call our Chalets. Think of a Chalet as an upscale hostel. Each Chalet has bedrooms, bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room. Depending on the total number of adult campers there will be one or two adult-only Chalets at each Adult session. Each bedroom sleeps 2-5 people. If you come with a friend, you can request to be in the same Chalet and/or room. If you come with a significant other, or prefer to have private room, then choosing the 'Everything But Lodging' package would be your best bet.

Everything But Accommodations PackageThis package is great for campers not quite up for the adventure of shared living spaces. This package is perfect for those who want a private room or more upscale lodging accommodations. This package is also a great option for those traveling with family or friends not-participating at High Cascade Cascade. You'll still feel integrated into camp life since meals, afternoon, and evening activities are all included.
The High Cascade Chalets are located in the quaint little village of Government Camp. Below is a list of lodging options for those interested in the 'Everything But Accommodations' or 'Coaching Only' packages. The following lodging options are in the village of Government Camp, and are Authorized Awesome by High Cascade for Adult Camp. Any of these options will put you within walking distance of the rest of camp (listed in order of proximity to camp facilities). If you are would like to stay in an accommodation not listed below, please email or call us to discuss logistics before making reservations.
If you’re looking to stay right smack in the middle of Government Camp, the newly constructed luxury condos at The Lodge at Government Camp is your best option. Staying at The Lodge puts you in the heart of Government Camp, right on the main loop drive. Guests can enjoy swimming pool and hot tub privileges at the Timberline Lodge, 10 miles away, slopeside the ski area. The Lodge is approximately $199-$325/night. (Fees vary during seasons, days of the week and number of guests.) Ask about the Special Discount for High Cascade families.
The Huckleberry Inn is also right smack in the middle of the Village of Government Camp. The Huckleberry Inn is a great hotel style option for families and groups (many rooms are bunk-style hotel rooms). Enjoy The Huckleberry’s 24-hour diner and a basic place to put your body to rest. Approximately $85-$155/night. (Fees may vary during seasons, days of the week and number of guests.)
Staying at the Thunderhead Lodge puts you just outside of the village of Government Camp. Thunderhead is across the street from the Grand Lodges. These older, more affordable condos are approximately a 6-8 minute walk from the main loop in Government Camp. Pool on site (heated with geothermal energy) Approximately $85-$155/night. (Fees vary during seasons, days of the week and number of guests.)
The Mt. Hood Inn is about a 8-10 minute walk from the main Government Camp loop. Approximately $159-$179/night. (Fees may vary during seasons, days of the week and number of guests.)
Coaching Only Package
The Coaching Only package is just that; it simply includes lift tickets, access into our private snowboard parks, and coaching within the adult coaching groups. This package is designed for someone who wants only the on-snow HCSC experience. Maybe your budget only allows for this, or maybe you live in Portland and want to drive up, shred and be home by dinner. Whatever your reason may be, this option works for some people. Choosing this option may make you feel a little ‘out of the loop’ as most people choose the 'all-inclusive' or the ‘everything but accommodations’ package. The Coaching Only package does not include airport transportation, meals, afternoon or evening activities. You may utilize the demo equipment, but in order to do so, you must arrive the night before your first day on snow (arrival day of the camp session) to get demo gear. Session 1 snowboarding days are June 16-21, Session 5 snowboarding days are July 27-August 4, and Session 6 snowboarding days are August 6-11.
MealsEach morning we serve up a hot breakfast buffet, with staples like eggs, hash browns, pancakes, waffles, bacon, sausage and veggie sausage. There is also a full cereal bar, fruits, yogurt, bagels, breads and muffins. Before or after breakfast you'll pack your lunch to take with you snowboarding. We don't want to take up your precious on-snow time having to leave for lunch, so you'll have a snow picnic with your coach and group. Lunch offerings for your packing delight include peanut butter and jelly, a variety of lunch meats, cheeses, various sandwich toppings, chips, pretzels, fruits and granola bars. Each evening the adults get together for adult conversation, adult beverages and good food. Some nights you'll visit local restaraunts in the area, and other nights dinner will be catered in at the adult Chalet. Both routes will leave you satisfied and pleasantly suprised. (meals are no included in the 'Coaching Only' package, those participating in this package will need to pack to pack a lunch)
The K-Unit (aka – Kitchen Unit)
Our kitchen staff makes the Iron Chefs look like a high school home economics class. This tight knit group of skilled culinary artists will not only shred lettuce and cheese for taco night, but can be seen shredding their faces off in our parks. If you think their roast beef looks good at dinner you should see them serving it up off the super kicker. The K-Unit is so serious about what they serve up, on and off the snow.
