Don’t miss the Monster Army Recon BMX Tour at Windells!

Recon_8_17_Windells

Even though it’s down to the last session on snow, things at Windells are slowing down quite yet. On August 17th, during our Session 8, Windells is hosting the Monster Army Recon BMX tour. Windells will be the last all-ages west coast stop! Get in on the action.

This year the Recon Tour is highlighting the 10 best parks in the country – 5 on the east coast, and 5 on the west coast. As the final stop for the west coast, the Windells campus is stoked to get in on the fun! We will have Monster Energy’s BMX Pro rider Mike Spinner here to host the competition, and the division winner from each stop will receive an all expenses paid trip to Spinner’s very own private backyard compound for the Recon Finals. Nearly $100,000 in cash and prizes are up for grabs!

Ozzy and Sawyer at Windells

Dakine has set out to highlight a summer at Windells. With the help of local filmer Jeff Kohnstamm, Dakine has released a series of edits that convey a typical summer snowboarding on Mt. Hood. It’s hard to say “typical” when a summer spent on Hood is anything but ordinary. Ozzy Henning and Sawyer Deen are lucky enough to call it  just another day in the life.

SNOWBOARDING WITH DAKINE AT WINDELLS / SESSION 5

Checking in: with Surface skier Banks Gilberti

Hailing from Idaho, and now a Breckenridge local, Banks Gilberti does it all; well. When he’s not skiing, it’s a pretty sure bet you can find him working on his motorcycle, skateboarding, fishing, and even snowboarding. Banks joined us this past week for Session 4 with Surface Skis, and we were lucky enough to be able to sit down with him and catch up on what he’s been up lately.

For the 6th year in a row, the Dirksen Derby at Mt.Bachelor delivered an unforgettable weekend. We tagged along with our friends at Rome Snowboards for a 3 day adventure filled with pow lines, great friends, amazing snowboarding, and a competition that rivals all others. Josh Dirksen has created a one of a kind event that reminds us all why we snowboard. Seasoned locals, the Northwest’s finest, and even the world’s best head out to Bend, OR for a snake run like course that pushes snowboarders to ride the snow wave as fast as they can. Needless to say, this event has everyone grinning from ear to ear. Raising money for a great cause, the Rome Team joined in on the action. So for today’s check in we are catching up with the crew to bring you their highlights from the event. Take a look right here…

Portland, Oregon experiences about 160 days of rain a year. In other words, it’s wet. Skaters need to head indoors to feed their hunger, session ramps, and hang with friends.
