There's no getting around it. Summer sucks. Sure, there's BBQs, cliff jumping, and skating to be done, but taking a whole six months off of snowboarding is more than we prefer to endure. In order to get a fix midsummer, the SNOWBOARDER Staff piled in a pick-up and pointed it from San Clemente, California to Mt. Hood, Oregon for the triumvirate of summertime contests in the Summer Games, the Drink Water Rat Race, Team Sports, and the Merrill Minipipe Invitationals. After 1,000 miles of driving north, our crew was met with by a crowd of riders slashing turns and planting lips. While we did partake in some warm weather activities, the best things to do in summer are only made better when you've already spent the day on hill. Enjoy our Summer Games roadtrip.
