At Windells Camp we believe that innovation plus evolution creates revolution, and revolutions change lives. Dedication to skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, and BMX coupled with a double dose of fun and friends makes Windells Camp the action sport hub for progression and personal development. Passion is the heartbeat of everything we do, especially when it comes to providing exceptional experiences and facilities for our campers to learn, grow, and evolve as people and athletes.
Blistering hot temps, ultra-long days, and no schoolwork to keep you occupied… how do you survive June, July and August?

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…]
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.
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.
We’ll tell Winter Camp stories about the snow falling, skies opening and the New Years Ball dropping forever. Three blue bird days, two pow days and one winter camp of a lifetime!
Thank you campers, staff and Ole’ Man Winter for making memories that will forever be apart of camp legend!
