What a memorable weekend we shared in Tygh Valley! We’re grateful to each and every Snow Peaker who camped with us. We hope you enjoy a look at some special moments and good times from the event. And if you weren’t able to make it this year, we hope this recap inspires you to join us in 2022!
Campers arrived throughout the day on Friday and dispersed in different pockets of the scenic box canyon. Some groups enjoyed the upper campfield with epic views, while others gathered in the family area closer to the main stage.
In the evening, everyone enjoyed coming together around the barn for Takibi Time, a Yuzu Shandy or glass of wine, and some s’mores.
Our expert workshop leaders kept enthusiasm high – from coffee bean roasting and matcha-making to birdwatching, cocktail mixology, and shibori tie-dye. In addition, campers enjoyed exploring the expansive site, hiking along the beautiful White River, and climbing to the viewpoints.
We were lucky to have three days of clear autumn weather and epic stargazing views – whether seen from the naked eye or through the lens of a telescope.
We wrapped up the weekend with the traditional paper airplane contest and a group photo. Then it was time to pack and say goodbye until next year!
Snow Peak Way offered us a reminder of the joys of gathering, the importance of the connection between Snow Peak staff and customers, and of course – of the rejuvenating power of nature.
Kanpai until next year, Snow Peak Way campers!
