Line Traveling Circus heads to the UK

The Line Traveling Circus is at it again. This time, the crew headed across the ol’pond to get a taste of ski life in the United Kingdom. In a nutshell, it seems like the snow scene is very much indoors. As much as we love the great outdoors here in Oregon, it’s very cool to see a community do whatever it takes to make sure they can ski all year long!

Opening day at Timberline Lodge!

Lifts are spinning on Mt. Hood! The Palmer Chairlift reopened to the public October 11th, 2013. While the Academy students had no problem earning their turns each day, they breathed a sigh of relief to catch the “easy” way up. Wax your equipment, grab a friend, and get stoked on preseason shredding!

October Pow Day! Windells Academy students enjoy fresh snow

Even though it’s technically fall, Winter doesn’t seem to be following any of those rules. Mother Nature delivered an early season storm, exciting the masses, and giving the Windells Academy students some fresh snow to enjoy. We could not be more excited for the winter season to begin at Mt.Hood Meadows, Timberline, and Ski Bowl. Once those lifts start turning, Winter Camp will be right around the corner! Make sure to register today and experience a holiday vacation like none other!

Windells Winter Camp is back!

Windells Winter Camp is the best way to experience some the most infamous terrain the Northwest has to offer! Learn freestyle snowboarding and skiing at the “funnest” place on earth.

Windells will be hosting its annual Winter Camp December 26 through January 2. Spend the week riding with professional coaches and new friends at Timberline Lodge, Mt. Hood Meadows, and Skibowl for a one of a kind (kid friendly or Adult Camp approved) New Years Eve celebration!

High precipitation and low temperatures set the scene for Mt. Hood’s powdery conditions. Windells’ campus, where campers live for the week, is 53 acres of private, skate friendly terrain. An indoor skatepark with two olympic style trampolines, a giant foam pit, and street style skate features provides endless entertainment off hill. The Concrete Jungle, Windells’ outdoor park, is some of the best skate turf in the Northwest.

Campers of all ages and abilities are welcome at this year’s Winter Camp! Registration fees include transportation to and from Portland International Airport, transportation to and from resorts, lodging, food, lift tickets, and gear demos.

Register for Winter Snowboard, Freeski, or Skatbeoard Camp today! Use the discount code “SNOWING” and save $150!

We’re (still) out here!

That’s right! Windells is still getting turns in. Mt. Hood might be closed to the public currently, but Windells Academy students are riding in their own Private Park this fall semester.
