The 9th Annual ADL Mahre Camp took place at Mt. Hood on June 24-26th, 2020. We overcame the challenges of hosting an event during the Covid-19 lockdowns and pulled off our largest camp ever. Over 28 campers came from all over the country to train with Phil, Steve, Mark Burandt and American Downhill legend AJ Kitt. We capped off the weekend with our legendary Hammerschlagen Tournament of Champions at the Glacier Public House in Government Camp and crowned a new champion.
We’re making an official run of our 2020/21 Season Club/Team Jacket. We ordered three prototypes and tested them out during the ADL Mahre Camp at Mt Hood and they performed well on the hill and in town. This jacket from Arctica is a super light puffy that has style that screams early 70s cool. We added our 501c3 2Hammers.org logo to the right chest and put our yellow classic Hammer logo on the sleeve. On the back we have the red and white ADLskiclub Quattro logo. It looks and performs radically and now is your chance to own one.
The Inkling: What is the Willy’s Run? Well first you have to ask what is a Willy’s. If you have been on one of our Austria Dream Trips then you would know the answer to the first part. Willy’s is a uniquely Austrian shot of Williams Pear Schnapps with a little round cocktail pear in the bottom of the glass, often adorned with a tooth-picked Austrian flag. It’s one of the most enjoyable après shots in the world, clean, refreshing with just the right amount of whooooeeeee on the finish.
If you ever wanted to experience an ADL Dream Trip on your own or with just your group of friends we are happy to announce Private & Custom ADL Trips for next winter. Make a trip private by reserving any available date exclusively for you and your crew.

We had five crazy trips this winter with five different groups of fun, adventurous ADL members. On each trip there were people we met or things that happened which created hilarious stories and memories to last a lifetime. We can’t fit them all on here as honestly, there were too many but, we can pick a few of the best images and share more details about the stories behind them.
