All Smiles at Windells Winter Camp

Tucker Speer – All Smiles on Mt. Hood

With the abundant snowfall up on lovely Mt. Hood (Thanks Mom Nature) we can’t help but smile. Winter Camp has been going off with a BANG! So much snow has fallen, the clouds have parted, and the sun has come out. Campers and Coaches are all smiling ear to ear, full of stoke, and having a great time.

Not only have we  been riding rails and boxes, but the abundant snowfall has allowed us to ride the entire resort, learning tricks from start to finish and making laps to keep those legs moving! With all of the snow falling, we have also been riding all kinds of powder lines up at Timberline!
