The 2014 US Snowboard Slopestyle and Halfpipe team was announced this past weekend at Mammoth Mountain. We couldn’t think of a more deserving group of athletes! The Winter Olympics are especially exciting for the Windells family because so many US and international competitors have spent time with us as campers on Mt. Hood. We’ve hosted some of them since the young age of 6, like Shaun White. Others, like Sage Kotsenburg, Chas Guldemond, Ty Walker, Greg Bretz, Taylor Gold, Danny Davis, Kelly Clark, Kaitlyn Farrington and Hannah Teter attended multiple sessions as Windells campers and then returned to Windells as visiting athletes or training with the US Team just a few summers later.

It’s true when we say Windells is a stepping stone for the Olympics!
