Team Takeover Thursday: Surface

The trees are blooming, the bugs are buzzing, and it sure does feel like summer is on the way. Now, obviously we are excited for the warm weather and loads of sunshine, but most importantly we are counting down the days until the Surface team takes over campus! The crew is gearing up for another amazing summer of bluebird laps and tie-dye mayhem. After checking in with the team, it’s safe to say that these guys will be turning camp upside down and delivering the goods during Session 4. Don’t forget to comment and answer the question at the bottom of this post for a chance to win some serious swag!

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.

Windells Summer 2013 Ski Session 3 recap

Words by John Kutcher

Session 3 was one for the history books. Blue skies and high temperatures called for sunglasses, sunscreen and Hawaiian shirts. Campers and staff beat the heat slip n’ sliding on campus and slashing tons of snow in Windells’ mile-long Private Park.
