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.

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.
