We took a trip to the Mecca of summer shredding that is Mt. Hood, Oregon, earlier this summer and shralped the slush of rad with an all-time crew of homies like Halldor Helgason, Ethan Morgan, Nicolas Müller, Arthur Longo, Spencer O'Brien, Gigi Rüf and more.

Every summer, snowboarders from the furthest reaches of the globe make the pilgrimage to a lone volcano in Oregon called Mt. Hood. But this is no run of the mill lump of rock covered in soft summer snow - far from it actually.

From mellow down bar sessions, to dodgeball with the kids, to the epic banked turns of the Rat Race, there is something for everyone to enjoy at Hood.

What we discovered when we had the opportunity to visit Hood ourselves this summer was a place literally bursting at the seams with stoke; where the kids are beyond hyped on snowboarding and the pros have everything they need to cap off their hectic winters with some laid-back slush stunting.

Our trip to 'action sports Disneyland' was made even more memorable thanks to the presence of some of snowboarding's chief flag bearers: the likes of Halldor Helgason, Nicolas Müller, Ethan Morgan, Louie Vito, Gigi Rüf, Spencer O'Brien and many more. Take a look at what they had to say about the good times at Hood and watch some prime snowboarding from the glacier.
