Joey "Scrappy Joe Young" Van Der Meer slides a drop rail with Mount Hood looming in the background. While skiers and snowboarders travel from all around the globe to enjoy Mount Hood in the summer, there is also plenty of local talent. Big name pros like Eric Pollard and Sammy Carlson grew up nearby and there are plenty of up and comers (like Van Der Meer) making names for themselves as well.
