Mt Hood 26: The Grand Opening

Story and photos by Enzo Plati

While most are packing it in for the season, Tim Snail and Scotty “Body” Conerly are unpacking and moving in. Friday April 15th marked the official opening of the Mt. Hood 26 snowboard shop in Welches, Or.

“Tim Snail and I have been talking about opening a shop for a long time now,” Scotty said. “The more we talked and researched, the more it just made sense. We started to think about a name for the shop and really wanted to bring back a time where everyone hung out at a shop and repped it as their own. Bringing back Mt. Hood 26 Shop just made sense ya know? We both were around that shop growing up and it was such a good time in snowboarding. We talked to the Linns and they were down so the rest is history.”

They will be carrying everything you would ever need to fully fulfill all of your shred life. Product is limited now mainly because it was considered a “soft opening” but never fear, word on the streets is they will be one of the first shops on Hood to carry 2012 product from Volcom, Yes, and Auviq, as well as a full skate line including shoes, decks, trucks wheels, ect… So the point is… While driving up to Timberline this spring be sure to stop off and check in with the newest shop on Mt. Hood. Mt. Hood 26.
