What’s Up @WindellsCamp 9/18: Fall Park and Academy begin

Last Monday was the fall semester’s start for the Windells Academy 14’/15′; It also was the curtains open for the ONLY Fall Park open in North America. The Fall Park and the Academy are synonymous with one another, and yet both unbelievable feats on their own. It is a place for the diehards, home for the Olympians-to-be and the schoolyard for students with a dream. Check out a few images that explain What’s Up @WindellsCamp.

Windells’ park is nothing short of a dream. It’s a snowy oasis. Windells campers get the best of the best and Nike just upped the bar!

Have you notice the slick new feature in the park? Bobby Meeks at Nike Snowboarding said, “We wanted to create something unique that had a great authentic street feel for everyone to ride.” Keep an eye out for the van in upcoming Session 3 edits!

Windells campers go dough-nutty for Burton

Campers weren’t shy with toppings. P: Tyler Orton

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…]

Congratulations, Nick!

@nickgoepper Headed to NZ! @louievito


Windells welcomes West Coast Session for another round

Mt. Hood is ready to welcome West Coast Session for another gathering of the most talented freestyle skiers in the game. 2012 marks the sixth West Coast Session. The most elite athletes were invited to ski with Windells, Amplid, Auviq, Buff and Vital Films at Timberline Lodge for the private photo and video session May 7th-10th. Hillcrest Sports is holding an on-hill barbecue on Sunday, May 6th for the public jam; a full day of contests and giveaways for all participants.

West Coast Session is exactly what the name implies; a session. “It’s different than a company shoot or a film session with lots of pressure. It’s a session and it’s fun,” said Windells Academy Head Ski Coach Jeff Curry. Last year, Curry worked on getting new sponsors for West Coast Session and this year he’s added Camtrol to the list. Curry skis for LINE, Full Tilt, Electric and Orage. [Read more…]

Kenworthy and Goepper top the podium at 4th annual Dumont Cup

Maine’s main event, the 4th annual Dumont Cup, went off at Sunday River Resort last weekend. Fifty one skiers gathered to compete for over $20,000 in prize money. The top spot went to Gus Kenworthy this year, a familiar face around Windells in the summer time. Windells Academy student, Nick Goepper, came in second, just two points behind Kenworthy’s 96.0. Last year, the two were switched; in 2011 Nick placed first at the Dumont Cup, one of the events that would propel his skiing career to a professional level. Nick has been competing and placing in just about all of the season’s major freeski events. Park City’s Joss Christianson placed 3rd. Joss is a familiar face around Windells and he’s spent plenty of time in the Private Park on hill. Alex Beaulieu-Marchand, also a student at Windells Academy, has had an incredibly successful season and placed 9th in the Dumont Cup.

Congratulations on the wins, guys! We’ll be seeing you around camp!

Interested in learning more about Windells Academy? We’re now taking applications for the Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring semesters. Hang out with Nick and Gus this summer at camp! Register online now to reserve your spot at www.windells.com.

The Best Is Out West: A Spring Storm Hits Mt. Hood

A spring storm has hit the Northwest! Mt. Hood is getting an insane amount of snow this week. Snow really started falling yesterday and we don’t see any sign of it letting up. Meadows reported 25″+ in the last 24 hours and a total base of 169″. The evidence is in the snapshot of their picnic tables! Timberline is sitting pretty and prepped for a fantastic summer. We were happy to see this photo of the Palmer buried under the late winter snow pack. Timberline’s reported base depth of 198″ is above average!
