Once again, it’s another unforgettable summer in the books for High Cascade, and what better way to cap off the final session on the glacier than with the dream team of Signature Session™ Pros that are Sage Kotsenburg, Sam Taxwood, Max Warbington, Blake Paul and Spencer Schubert.

Off hill the games continued with Spencer Schubert ruling the slack line, and the rest of the crew hyping up all other afternoon activities.
