Matthew Lazzaretto!

Thanks, everyone for leaving your comments and taking part in our warm-up for Summer 2012! We are sufficiently stoked for the first summer session to begin. Keep up with Windells Camp on the blog, on facebook, twitter, vimeo, and youtube.

It’s not too late to get registered for camp, either! Some sessions are still open, and the snow on Hood will be great all summer. Get out to the “funnest” place on earth!





Team Takeover Thursday with Nick Visconti

This is an extra exciting Team Takeover Thursday because it is our last installment of the weekly contest before summer camp starts! This time next week, campers will be here and Dakine will be taking over session 1 for snowboarders and Poor Boyz Productions will be taking over session 1 for skiers. Because this is our last Team Takeover Thursday, we wanted to highlight one of our longest Team Takeover Sessioners, Nick Visconti. Nick has been hosting session at camp for four years and before that was a coach, and before that, he was a camper! Nick is a longtime member of the Windells family and we look forward to him coming back every year.

Nick was nice to catch us up on his summer plans and why he returns to Windells every year. We can’t wait for Nick’s creative snowboarding, filled with tuckknees, one-footers and handplants to abound in the Windells park! Make sure to check out The Reunion Team Takeover Session 4, with Nick, Curtis Woodman, Jason Robinson, and Stevie Bell. Combined, these four guys have more energy than a cabin full of campers and they are lots of fun to shred with, skate with, and play knockout (or bump) with. You can check out everyone that will be at Windells for the Snowboard Team Takeover Sessions and Ski Team Takeover Sessions.


And, for this week’s question:

If you could go snowboarding with Nick Visconti for a day, where would you go and what would you do?

Post your answers in the comments below before 4pm Friday and we will pick our favorite answer to win a Windells prize pack! We will announce the winner tomorrow afternoon!

And The Team Takeover Thursday Winner Is…

For this Team Takeover Thursday we asked all of you to describe your ideal adventure with Van Bear Pig. The Line Traveling Circus crew has definitely worked this thing to the bone, but there’s always room for another good road trip. Our lucky winner Hunter Muir figured out the next best trip for this infamous van. “I’d take Van Bear Pig down to Cancun, Mexico during Christmas break and try to explain to people what they’re missing.” Ya know what Hunter, that’s a great idea and we wish we could spread the snow love to all those fools in speedos. There is still tons of snow to be had in Mount Hood so get off the beach! Enjoy your new swag bag and have a great summer!Stay tuned for Session 3 with Line Traveling Circus and Will Wesson!

Team Takeover Thursday: Will Wesson with Line Traveling Circus

We are pretty lucky. We have great snow, incredible sponsors, and some of the best coaches around. This week we spotlight one of those ski coaches that just happens to be part of our Session 3 Team Takeover Crew. We are talking about the one, the only, Will Wesson from the Line Traveling Circus. This winter they took Van Bear Pig on the road and finished up the 4th season of their extremely entertaining and always impressive webisode series. If you didn’t already know, these guys know how to have a good time. Which means if you made the right decision to come to Session 3, you’re in for a ride. It’s going to be one heck of a good time with Will Wesson and the whole gang.
