The Unit just wrapped up a session at Mt. Hood for HCSC session 5. The weather was perfect and there was tons of snow up there. Our days were spent on hill in an inverted position with arm flexed and minimal rail contact. After a long season on the grind it's good to switch up your game for bit.

We tortured ourselves multiple times daily with an onslaught of frozen pizzas and even tooled up a few in the morning pre-shred.
