Big air is back at Mt Bachelor this year with 10 Barrel Brewing Co.’s second annual Hella Big Air
ski and snowboard competition. 10 Barrel will be taking over the mountain on Saturday, March 25th
beginning at 10:30am and going all day–with live DJ sets, BBQ and beers at the 10 Barrel beer garden, a
full free concert by Lyrics Born and more.
Ski and snowboard competitors will battle it out all day-long showing off their style and skills on the 90-foot
custom jump in hopes of winning a cut of the $30,000 cash prize purse. The bar has been set high by last
year’s finalists, Ryan Linnert (snowboard), JD Dennis (snowboard) and winners, Nils Mindnich (snowboard)
and Alex Schlopy (ski), all of whom have been invited to return and defend their title at this year’s event.
The event is free and open to the public of all ages for spectating. Professional skiers and snowboarders
must apply in advance to compete by filling out the registration link at www.10barrel.com/hellabigair

There’s a reason we live in Oregon — because it pretty much rules. And one thing we like about it: the people. Meet four of them in the latest installment of ExplORe from Ilusive Snowboarding.

These days we are seeing a lot of evolution with regards to snowboarding competitions. We have RedBull’s Double Pipe, Mountain Dew’s Peace Pipe, The Holy Bowly, but nothing really merges old features with young bodies quite like YoBeat’s Mogul Mayhem. Nothing really says snowboard progression like ripping off skier competitions and doing backflips into a field of moguls, which is like riding through a minefield to an ACL. Not to mention, Stan and the legend Jeff Holce the Athlete were judging… with clipboards!
It was a comp crafted by the Gods, hosted in heaven –Timberline Lodge–and grounded in progression, and that’s what we at Shoulda’ Danished love; progression, progression, progression… and RedBull, A LOT of RedBull! That’s what really brought us out here.
May 3rd has been circled in our calendar for months and our training schedule was heavier than the new Connect the Dots teaser! Leg presses, crunches, 360s, backflips, yoga, steroids, protein shakes…. and when it came down to it, we f*cking threw DOWN! The Union bindings, Poler Bags, Stance Socks, Coal Headwear, and that fresh ass DC snowboard was all going to be ours! This was going to be the time in our lives when we finally prove to our Mom’s that we had a future and that we didn’t just make lame snowboard musicals, dress up like women, and rap for no reason… or so we thought…
We lost, not a single prize was ever in sight, no pictures, no video coverage, it’s like we weren’t even there. F*ck it, we are going back to Canada.
Recent storms have dumped over 2 feet of great early season snow above Timberline, giving us enough coverage to fire up the lifts and get the season started! We are planning to operate two lifts Friday, Saturday and Sundays, from 9am to 3pm, as weather and conditions permit. We are planning on operating the Palmer Chairlift for skiing and riding, accessed by the Magic Mile Chairlift. Skiers and riders should be prepared to download on the Magic Mile. The only skiable terrain at this time is on the Palmer Snowfield.
Check our conditions page for web cams and up-to-the-minute lift status information.
Early season discounted lift ticket pricing will be $54 (adults age 18-64), $46 (teen age 15-17), and $36 (junior/senior). Rates will increase when we are able to open more lifts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
Season Passes will be available for purchase and valid immediately! Check out the Mt. Hood Fusion Pass — valid for the entire winter season at both Mt. Hood Skibowl and Timberline Lodge. New this year: Fusion Pass holders will automatically be a part of the Powder Alliance — providing a total of 30 free lift tickets at other partner resorts. Check out all the details here.
Upper mountain skiing and riding is recommended for advanced intermediate and above skill levels only. No beginner terrain is available at this time. Due to early season conditions, low snow areas may exist. Please remain on groomed runs at all times. Always ski and ride in control. Always read and obey all on hill signs.

Dr. B of Yawgoons fame put together this video of their trip to Mt. Hood. We should warn you, it’s not the epically progressive snowboarding video you want it to be, but it is a pretty sick video all the same.
