Shop Spotlight: Mt. Hood 26

Mt. Hood 26 was originally started in Rhododendron, Oregon back in 1993 by Josh Linn, Gabe Linn, and their father. The shop also included Jason Hutchins, Josh Frazier, Griffin Cummings, and other Mt. Hood locals. Snowboarding legends hung out there; like Marc Franc Montoya, Devun Walsh, Todd Richards, and many more. It was a great place to hang out, had a skate ramp out back, and had a super cool vibe. Then sometime around 1996 the doors closed and it wasn’t until Tim Snail and Scotty Conerly partnered up and re-opened the shop at a new Welches, OR location in 2011. The Re-opened Mt. Hood 26 created a good following with the locals and re-created a great vibe around Mt. Hood.  However; due to increased work loads in each of their respective professions, the managing owners reluctantly sold the shop to another owner that could focus on retail.

Some people love them and some people hate them but if you are one of those people who just cannot get enough, this is a good place to start.
