Winner of the “12 Reasons why…” contest!

A week ago we put on a contest to see who could give us the 12 best reasons why Windells Camp is The “funnest” Place on Earth, for a chance to win a pair of size 12 limited edition Windells Nike 6.0 shoes!  After reviewing all of your post we were forced to narrow it down to the top 3 due to the tight competition.  All of the responses were so legit!  That’s why we are giving the two runner ups Windells DVD and stickers for their efforts.

We are asking for 12 reasons why Windells is The “Funnest” Place on Earth and expect the competition to be even closer this year!

The DaKine Backpack goes too.

Two Weeks ago we started a contest and we have came to a conclusion.

In the midst of one of the biggest spring snowy seassons on Mt Hood, the guys and girls in the office at Windells decided that the Goat Picture is the favorite.  Their is a funny story behind this one where his other goats where intrigued about the sticker and tried eating it.  Then he had to jump over the fence (after getting the shot) to stop the goats from consuming the Windells Sticker.  Congrats to the Winner of the 2010 Windells Dakine Custom Backpack.

Runners Up Will receive a Windells Camp DVD.  Pictures Below

Contest Nonsense…

The Cricket Wireless Campus Rail Jam Tour took place this past weekend in Downtown Portland.  Snow was hauled in from Mt. Hood and 3 rails were shredded in front of 3000+ that were in attendance.  The contest was started by a college organization who wanted to get experience putting on marketing programs and a national tour.  It blossomed into a strong following and an entire west coast tour visiting 14 colleges in seven states.  By ridaz for ridaz!!!


Staffer Kyle Martola took his strong contest skills with him into the finals and ended up taking a very respectable second place.  It paid out $500 cash and a whole slew of prizes including a new snowboard.  Congratulations kyle, way to put on for Oregon and Wisconsin.


Amazing skater and absolute beast Josh Bishop ended up taking first place at the event.  That’s right, Windells took the top two positions at the finals.  Josh is the kind of kid that doesn’t let contests go to his head so the first thing he did when he got back to camp was go straight to work in the Kitchen.  Hard work and determination will get you anywhere, bring your work ethic with you to Windells and only good things can happen.  See you this summer!!!
