Enzo, Josh Bishop and the Atmosphere crew put on some of the best events at camp. They just posted photos on the Atmopshere blog about Session 2’s on hill event. Check it out!
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.
It was a beautiful sunny day on the slopes at Windells Camp where we found the snowboard girls rallying the jumps. Camper Megan started out on the small jump and progressed to the first jump in the main line so we were stoked to give Megan Camper of the Day. At age 17, Megan comes from Pittsburgh, PA where she rides Seven Springs in the winter.
Why did you choose to come to Windells Camp?
Megan: To become a better snowboarder.
How is the coaching so far?
Megan: Amazing. Ricky and Droid have been super helpful with everything.
What tricks have you been working on this session?
Megan: I learned how to 180, boardslide and frontside.
Have you participated in the on-campus activities?
Megan: I tried to do the Burton ladies night but that wasn’t happening. Pretty much did all of them except for the nasty drinking. The Betty Rides night was finger nail painting and movies with candy.
What advice would you give to other campers?
Megan: Have fun and don’t worry about what other people think. That was my problem, I was worried about the other girls in my cabin what they were doing. But today I just did my own thing to become a better snowboarder.
Megan: Yeah Ricky owes me digger dogs for my frontside and 180’s.
To celebrate Father’s Day at Windells Camp, we found a father and son at session 2 who are here to progress their skiing & snowboarding this summer. Tom is a 40 year old snowboard camper here with his son Luke a 7 year old skier. They’ve been ripping up the mountain and having a blast here at Windells Camp.
Why did you choose to come to Windells Camp?
Luke: For skiing
Tom: I wanted to be with Luke for his camp.
Do you like being together at camp?
Tom: I do like being around my son, he’s a good kid and he’s very popular at the digger dog tent. He dropped two hot dogs today so I got to eat extra for lunch.
The Diggers put in tons of work to bring this session’s dream feature to life. A eurogap, polejam, barrier bonk, stairset, and a quarter pipe all rolled into one. Just wait for the video to come out, some hammers were dropped on this thing, on both the ski and snowboard end of things. The sun was out, good vibes were going around, and everybody was stepping up their game… [Read more…]
It’s our second on-snow day at Windells Camp and the weather cooperated for a great day on snow in the Windells private park where we found our latest camper of the day. Noah is a 14 year old snowboarder from Ohio who came to session 1 and stayed for session 2. He’s been a bright personality around camp and has given many high 5’s on snow to fellow campers and staff. When he found out he was Camper of the Day, he hit the first jump in our private park and went big just to show his appreciation!
This one is for the ladies out there: we all know that it is really fun to snowboard, ski and skate with the boys. But, sometimes it’s a nice break from the world of dudes to have a ladies night and really girl-out, and that’s what the lady campers of Session 1 did. Betty Rides came to camp, popped Thrashin’ in the DVD player (if you haven’t seen this movie, definitely watch it), and put on the girliest night Windells has ever seen. It was a refreshing break from snowpants and skateboards for a few hours –80’s movies, nail painting, girl talk? Yeah, it sounds like the most girly thing in the world, but trust me, when you’re outside being one of the boys all the time, this is your perfect mini-break at camp.
