Checking in from Seattle’s Downtown Throwdown

Another busy weekend of snowboarding related events is in the books. This time, riders took to the streets of Seattle for another amazing year of the Downtown Throwdown, a crowd favorite produced by Snowboy Productions.  A good crew of our usual summer park goers were in attendance this weekend. Nick Visconti, Derrek Lever, Dylan Alito, Jonah Owen, and Dylan Thompson all suited up and made the most out of the perfect fall day. Take a look at our photo recap and make sure to stop by the San Francisco stop in a few weeks!

Checking in with Windells at Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails 2012

After a weekend of mayhem and sleep deprivation, the 9th annual Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails has come to an end.

Check out some of our trip highlights right here as we recap our favorite moments from this past weekend:

Klint Skis with Wasabi, Ketchup, Onions and Mayo please

Uhoh…

 

If there’s anything Windells campers like more than skiing, it’s getting free stuff and this week, that free stuff came from the Klint Skis Takeover crew. There was a catch though.

Session 6 Technine instagram contest

The Technine Team is taking over Session 6 and not only are the looking to shred the on hill park and the Concrete Jungle, but they’re infiltrating your social media, too! Dylan Thompson, Lucas Magoon, Ben Bilodeau, Brady Larson, and Nick Poohachoff will pick their favorite photo to award a Technine jacket and prizepack to. The winner will be announced at disorientation and we will post our favorites on the blog!

Surface Skis’ Banks Gilberti look-a-like contest

Banks Gilberti is pretty recognizable with his flowly, blond locks, rolled up jeans, and, oh yeah, his insane skills on skis. During Session 4, Surface skis picked up some wigs, fake noserings and arm slings (not a usual part of Banks’ kit, but he had recently hurt himself), and gave campers the chance to transform into a Banks look-a-like. The results are awesome.

Roxy ladies doughnut eating competition

Every night at Windells, the camp staff holds a ladies-only activity. Of course, the awesome girls and women that come to camp are totally comfortable hanging with the guys, learning to skate in the Concrete Jungle, and can hold their own and learn new tricks on the mountain, but it’s pretty rad to get some time away from the boys each day to hang with the ladies.

Each activity is different, ranging from making and sending postcards to watching 80s movies and getting girly by painting your fingernails, but the theme is the same: hang out with the women of Windells and take away some souvenirs of the session at Windells. One of the fun sponsor nights? The Roxy doughnut eating competition, in which competitors must chow down on doughnuts, and there’s a catch–the tasty treats are hanging from strings and each person is blindfolded.
