Steeps and Stashes One and Two Days

Explore some of the steepest terrain Mt. Hood offers and seek out the sickest stashes hidden all over our varied terrain. We offer the necessary skills for skiers and riders wanting to conquer the most technical and advanced terrain on Mt. Hood. 

Find pro knowledge and learn some sweet powder pockets after the bowls are chewed up. In the Steeps & Stashes Camp, spend two days with some of our most skilled instructors to learn some tips and tricks to enjoy the best that Mt. Hood has to offer.

Depending on signup numbers, we will have multiple group leaders to help find your perfect niche on the mountain. Groups will be tailored to each group’s needs and abilities. These camps are designed for experienced skiers and snowboarders who are at upper-intermediate levels and above. Upper intermediate means you can ski or ride on all blue terrain and most black terrain; advanced and above means you can ski or ride on all black terrain and most double black gated terrain at Meadows.

  • Has basic understanding of risk management and mountain hazards

Not ready for these yet? We offer half-day and full-day Group Lessons on blue and black terrain for intermediate and advanced students to help you improve your skills. For an individualized coaching, we also recommend Private Lessons to fully tailor your learning experience.

Each day is five hours of coaching with the same coach for both days if signed up for a two-day camp.


  • 8:45 AM - Meet and greet, get ready to rip it up
  • 8:55 AM - Head to Lesson Priority Lane with group for "first chair"
  • 9 to 11:30 AM - on-snow coaching
  • 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM - lunch "on your own”
  • 12:30 to 3 PM - on-snow coaching

We’ll do our best to connect late arriving guests with their group at 9:45 AM at one of the base area lifts (Mt. Hood Express or Stadium) - it’s best to plan to arrive early so that no one misses any of the “goods” because of late arrivals; we know this happens, so plan ahead so as not to miss out on “first chair”.
