Conditions couldn’t have been better for this year’s 15th Annual Bonfire Pipe to Pipe snowboard and skate competition. The set up on hill was nothing short of amazing and all of the competitors were stoked. Collisions were minor, crowd-pleasers were major, and Windells employees crushed it on hill and off.
Assistant Head Digger, Everest Arnold, and snowboard coach, Mary Rand, tag team the spine.
Counselor Jesse Paul, looking at things a little differently.
On Mt. Hood’s infamous Palmer Glacier, employees strapped in to compete in both the pro and am divisions. Jedi-braided counselor, Jesse Paul, rounded out the Men’s pro division in third place and $250 richer. Rome SDS rider and Windells snowboard coach, Mary Rand, took her seat in second place for the Pro Women. Caitlin Kelly, a longtime Windells snowboard coach from Vermont, took second for the Am Women.

The gang rallied down to Windells’ campus for the skate portion of the evening. For this one evening during the summer, Windells is open to the masses and the masses did not disappoint. Hundreds of spectators showed up to watch the longest running and most enjoyable skate event on Mt. Hood, second only to Christmas. And Go Skate Day. Digger Jordan Small placed first for Am Men, followed by trusty office intern, Nick Kenny. Mary Rand podiumed again in third place for the Am Women.
