Windells Academy is having too much fun.

Aside from being able to attend a totally awesome high school year round, traveling across the country to events like the Dew Tour, Rev Tour, and Gatorade Free Flow Tour; AND getting to meet and ride with some of the biggest names in the industry…. The students of Windells Academy even have way too much fun on their “down” time! The students  have full access to ALL of our 53 acres of skate, mountain bike,  foam pit, trampoline and bmx features. That means instead of recess during school, we have our mid day break in B.O.B (the building out back) which gives kids time to wind down and get out their energy before going back to school. B.O.B includes 12,000 square feet of skate features including a huge bowl, multiple quarter pipes, rails, and 2 different drop in options that will put you straight into the foam pit. B.O.B also has a world class trampoline to practice all your coolest tricks before you put them on snow. Windells Academy is the “funnest” and smartest place ON EARTH!

Windells Academy Dew Tour-Utah

The students of Windells Academy had the time of their lives last week at the Utah stop of this years winter Dew Tour. The students enjoyed time at the contest itself, cheering on their friends and peers in slope style and halfpipe, and witnessing some of the craziest ski aerials known to man. The students had the great pleasure to spend time with people in the industry such as Jimmy Disco (US Team), Shannon Bahrke (Olympic Silver in moguls), Todd Schirman (FIS World Coach of the Year) and many others. The students made an awesome visit to Ccauswell headquarters (www.surfaceskis.com), took a trip to the flow rider indoor surf and water sports center, and even took a lesson on indoor sky diving!

Glen Plake rides Mt. Hood with Windells Academy!

World famous freestyle skier Glen Plake made a stop at Mt.Hood this week to hang out with the students of Windells Academy. Glen and his wife Kimberly chose Hood for one of their multiple stops on their “home town” ski tour. Glen, famous for his 2 foot tall, usually multicolored mohawk, decided to keep it real this week and keep his hair tucked nicely into a warm hat. Plake hit the park with the students of Windells Academy all day, and even gave them a few pointers on his famous “ballerina skiing” methods.  Plake also took the time to show the students some of his favorite freestyle ski moments in history on his flat screen TV nestled into his built in tune shop on in the right side rear of his personal tour bus. After skiing, Glen headed inside to sign autographs, and pass out some free gear for anyone at Timberlne. The conditions couldn’t have been nicer and everyone had a blast. Thanks Glen
