A session at Windells would not be complete without coming home with some new gear. Campers get a lot of free gear here at camp but Dex’s Store is always super busy with campers looking to pick up new stuff from their favorite companies. Our fully-loaded camp store has you covered (literally) from head-to-toe. [Read more...]

Red Bull welcomes you to Windells!

Red Bull photographer Aaron Blatt came to Windells to hang out for a few days to see what really goes down in the summer months on Mt. Hood. Aaron was able to capture some amazing photos of our campus, the mountain, the Concrete Jungle, new BOB, campers, staff, and Team Takeover athletes. Check out the full article here to see some unreal photography and an insider’s perspective on camp life!

Checking in with Saga’s Steve Stepp


Windells ski coach Steve Stepp has it made this summer. Hailing from Salt Lake City, Steve spends all winter riding Utah snow and all summer at Mt. Hood skiing and skating with us at Windells.

This summer Steve has been working as the social media and activity coordinator for Saga Summer, so if you see him cruising around in the giant Saga truck be sure to shout out to him. We decided to stalk a few of Steve’s photos and see what sort of mischief he’s been getting into for the past 3 sessions.

It’s hard to believe that the fun doesn’t stop once campers get back from the mountain every day. We’ve found that free gear is the best way to keep the hype going well beyond 3:00pm. Unfortunately, “free gear” can’t always be free. Off-hill activities are a great way for the campers to load up with tons of gear from their favorite companies. [Read more...]

Still Frame: Erik Hoffman


Getting a useable shot in the summer on Mt. Hood takes a lot more work than you’d think. Few people know this better than Erik Hoffman. Erik is one of the shutter-men (and women) responsible for Snowboard and Ski photos for our summer sessions. He is always doing what he can to get the best on-hill shots and his photos definitely show it. His work has been featured in Magazines, Windells advertisements, and various other web pages. Erik’s work captures the scene of summer shredding really well and although many have seen his photos, not many are able to put a face to the name. Here are just a few of our favorite images from sessions 1 & 2.
