Notice The Vertical Rows of “fencing” – Snow Farming in Full Effect on Palmer – P: J. Ingersoll

We’re often asked about Mt. Hood, the phenomenon that allows Windells to offer skiing and snowboarding camps all summer long. There are natural aspects that cater to year-long snow on the Palmer snow field that we discussed in a recent post, but there is a tactic that Timberline Resort has used summer after summer to maintain skiable terrain into the summer months, called snow farming. Resorts throughout the world have been practicing snow farming for years, in ways that we may not even notice as skiers and riders. [Read more…]

ON3P Skis Factory Tour

ON3P
The Windells’ office staff was lucky enough to be able to get a private factory tour of one of our favorite brands in the industry, ON3P. Not only is ON3P a Portland, Oregon based brand; they design, prototype, tests, and builds their skis right here in the Beaver State. We got a chance to link up with Sam from ON3P earlier this week to get a tour of the office and production facility.

Ever wonder how hand made skis start? This base mold gives the builder exact dimensions of each ski model, size, profile, etc.

 

ON3P is just over six years old and has come a long way since their humble beginnings manufacturing skis in a 200sq. ft garage. They now are manufactured in a 8,400 sq. foot facility on the east side of Portland. At this facility you will find the crew talking about sales, marketing, skiing, shipping, receiving, the Blazers, and what the dinner menu is looking like.

ON3Ps Custom USA Press – Skis Made in the USA by Skiers

All ON3P skis boast a 100% bamboo core, and are paired with carbon fiber stringers, allowing their skis to stay responsive, lively, and incredibly durable. Thicker base materials and beefier stainless steel edges are used to increase strength and prepare the skis to take a beating in the woods, in the back country, and in the park.
