Taylor Gold Mt. Hood Summer Update

This summer, I spent sessions 3 and 4 at Windell’s in Mt. Hood, Oregon snowboarding with many of the other PacSun USASA Team riders. The on-hill experience was insane! Almost every day was sunny and slushy. Windell’s even had an airbag that sat at the end of a sick 22-foot halfpipe along with a line of smooth jumps and a rail park. I was able to learn Michalchuks, better Alley-Oop Rodeos, better Cab spins, and almost a Double Cork 1080. The airbag was perfect for working on double corks, but with only one day in session 4 remaining, I wasn’t able to try one.

Off the hill, I mostly went skateboarding and jumped on trampolines. Although I’m not good at skateboarding, I still had an awesome time riding the sweet new skateparks at Windell’s. Spending time at Mt. Hood was definitely one of the “funnest” things I’ve done this year and I can’t wait to come back soon.
