The West Coast Session To Celebrate Its 10th Anniversary

After nine year bad ass years of big air, trickery and shenanigans, the much-loved West Coast Session is returning to Mount Hood, Oregon this May for a milestone: their 10-year anniversary. To commemorate it, the iconic spring park shoot will be celebrating in style, with multiple mini-contests and the return of their team event, The Session Showdown.

Ten years in the making: West Coast Session 10 is here

The iconic spring skiing event returns to Timberline Ski Area and Windell’s Camp at Mount Hood, Oregon for one last go-round on May 1-6, 2016.

On May 1-6, 2016 the West Coast Session will return to Timberline Ski Area and Windell’s Camp for a tenth year of celebrating skiing on the slopes of Mount Hood, Oregon.

Over the past decade the West Coast Session has grown from a small photo and video shoot to a full-fledged family gathering. At the end of each season skiers from around the world flock to Mount Hood to meet old friends, make new ones, session an incredible park and enjoy one of skiing’s cult-classic events.

For our tenth anniversary, we’re very glad to welcome our international family of skiers, photographers, filmers and friends for one last hoo-rah. We’re pulling out all the stops for this very special event, with a host of special features and the return of our team contest: The Session Showdown.

The contests will range from daily mini-contests on social media to team and individual video contests. More details about the “10 for 10” contests will be posted soon on
