MAGMA – Alex Hall and Hunter Hess

By: Ethan Stone November 16, 2019

With its popular glacier snowparks and camps, Oregon’s Mt. Hood is no stranger to ski customers in the summer months. Few of them, however, go as hard as Hunter Hess and Alex Hall did last summer while filming “Magma.” In fact, it might well be that no one’s gone this hard on a Hood summer since Sammy Carlson’s “On Top of the Hood” back in 2011. Click play and Hess and Hall go ham (that was too easy, sorry) through a summer of backcountry features and mind-melting sends.
