Hey everyone from the High Cascade and the “We are Camp” Family,

If you haven’t heard, Windells and High Cascade have created a weekend winter program on Mt. Hood at Timberline Ski Area, “Head to HoodTM”. It’s a freestyle coaching program and we are starting the search for coaches on both sides of our core sports; Freeskiing and Snowboarding. We will offer pre-program coaching clinics to qualified coaches and pre-program coaching training to riders looking to get into coaching.

 

Some Details:

  • What: Freestyle and Freeride coaching program. We coach riders to improve their freestyle skills, and fall in love with Winter riding. Competition is a component for some riders that so choose
  • Where: Timberline Ski area on-hill with some après on –hill time at Windells for Skating and Trampoline cross training and fun. Approximately 8:00am to 5:30 pm.
  • When: January 10th – March 15th   Four 5-week Saturday and or Sunday sessions. Coaches have to commit to at last two sessions Riders register for one, two, three, or all four sessions!
  • Who: Intermediate to highly advanced riders ages 10 -17
  • Coach and lead a snowboard group of 5 or 6 intermediate riders.
  • Coaches Benefits: Timberline or Fusion Pass, Decent daily pay, Pre program coaching training, doing good work with NW Oregon riders. There are also other opportunities to make more money besides coach’s pay.

Regardless, have a great winter and it’s going to abundantly snow everywhere especially in the Cascades on Mt. Hood.

Why Windells? 9/24

Every so often we at Windells like to take a break from the action and credit all the programs and persons that  collaborate to make Windells the premier action sports camp. Obviously, campers are going to clamor and clap about their time at ski/snowboard/skateboard camp, so we asked two times Windells camper Miles Bibelheimer’s mother, “Why Windells?”

Camper Miles Bibelhiemer is serious about zombie dodgeball because the Walking Dead is not something is no laughing matter.

“We have sent our ten year old son, Miles, to Windells two years in a row and have had nothing but great experiences.  Windells’ staff is very professional and our family has been more than impressed by their follow-thru and personal attention to Miles.  Among all of the campers, they seem to know who Miles is when we call from California to check on him.  We were very concerned about Miles flying alone for the first time in order to attend Windells but the staff was very organized and the experience was smooth for both Miles and me, as the worried parent. Next summer, we plan to go to Hawaii on a family trip and Miles has been given notice that he may not get to go Windells; he is now trying to bail on Hawaii to head to skate camp!  Top notch!” -Andrea Bibelheimer

In 1815 the Oregon Trail passed right below Mt. Hood and was considered a road for pioneers and outlaws. In tribute to the Wild West, camper Carson Vance throws a right side Rodeo.

Regram & Remember 9/8

Windells is Forever Fun. But not everyday is the best day of our lives, so we have to hold onto the memories of when it was. Regram & Remember is our new Monday blog series where we look, feel and escape back into the days of the lives of our campers, staff and pros through their Instagrams. If you have meaningful images that show a certain trick, a time that you got the shot or just a junk folder memoir from Windells Camp of a magical moment on your snowboard, skateboard, skis or bike make sure to tag us @windellscamp and hashtag #windells2014 as we scour it weekly for the next Regram & Remember…

This week’s Regram & Remember is of Ryan Mallahan stomping a bolts boardslide on down rail. Style? Check. Proper execution? Double check. Memory of having fun at Windells Camp? Forever.

School is not the only thing back in session, so is weekend ‘Open Skate‘ at Windells Camp. Our private facilities’ red light is turning to a green light as we are opening for all skateboarders to do what skateboarders do, skate and destroy. If you have not skated at Windells all you need to know is that a helmet, a waiver, and a small deposit (TBA) grants you access to about 100,000 sq ft. of 4-wheel friendly terrain. If you haven’t ripped with us or visited one of our many Skate, Snowboarding, Ski or BMX camps, here is an insider’s guide to our private skatepark.
