We’ve just begun session 5 at Windells Camp with a total revamp of the terrain park to help bring out the great snow conditions we have for July. In the morning while lapping the Magic Mile with coach Izzy Lalive’s group where we found camper Maya from Taos, New Mexico. 14 year old Maya came to camp to learn everything so we’re looking forward to see her progression on the mountain this week as she tackles everything she can.
Over the years, Windells has built the best snowboard camp experience in America. We take pride in our facilities, and passion for the sport. Read on to get a taste of what Windells has to offer.
Atmosphere is a pretty awesome company, not only for the sweet duds they churn out to keep you warm and fresh-looking, but also because they come to camp a couple of times a session and put on sick events, both on and off the slopes. They also keep a super-updated blog, so when you can’t skate or shred and you’re sitting around geeking out on your computer (don’t kid yourself, we do it, too, it’s cool), you can check up on what’s going on in the Northwest, with their team, and with your favorite snowboard camp, of course! Check out their blog right now for a TON of Windells updates. They’ve got updates from their riders, the diggers, Session 4 snake race and more. All the photos are by Drew Smalley from DSImagery. Thanks for the love guys!
During Session 3, Rome’s Laurent-Nicolas Paquin and Staale Sandbech were at camp and they even stopped by ladies night to say what’s up to the campers! They both were really good sports and got a thumb painted. Don’t they look nice?
The warm weather continues to bless the campers at Session 4 of Windells Camp and under the sun campers of all ability levels are dialing in their tricks before they go back home. Snowboard Coach Billy Rodriguez named his campers Team Awesome crew for session 4 and inside the Team Awesome group we found 12 year Chloe from New York who came to Windells to progress her park riding.
Session 4 has arrived at Windells Camp and delivered bluebird skies with winds today on the slopes on the mountain. Each session we have adult campers who vary in ages and skills but are enjoying the camp just as much as the kids. I enlisted the help of Brandon Cocard to pick out a camper for today and he picked 33 year old Beau from Seattle, WA in the adult group whose goggles sealed the deal.
Corbin Clement, one of Windells’ awesome snowboard coaches, just sent over this teaser for the new film, Pro Bono. It’s described as a snowboarding documentary and looks like it follows a bunch of young Colorado rippers and friends of Windells: Broc Waring, Dylan Bidez, Jake and Zack Black and of course, Corbin, too. Check it out, it’s got a nice combination of double corks and powder shots, so it should be a good video!
