Windells offers industry-leading Freeski Coaching for skiers of all Abilities. Under the Direction of Head Coach, Brian McCarthy, our world-class coaches of the likes of Jamie Melton, Topher Newett, Dean Spirito, Ethan Swadburg, and many others, focus on your specific needs to make you the best skiers you can be. When you combine our world-class coaching with our pristine Private Parks™ in flawless summer weather, progression is inevitable at Windells…. Come dial in your skiing skills, and take home a bag of tricks large enough to make even the best of pros jealous.
Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or advanced (or anything in between), we have the right coach just for YOU! Campers are divided into coaching groups according to ability first, age second, and then placed with the most suitable male or female coach. Our coaches are trained in freeskiing, and have the ability to coach at any ability level.
Unlike instruction you may get at a resort, Windells’ coaching program is designed to go hand-in-hand (or mitten-in-mitten) with our world-renowned terrain parks (we’ve been building parks since the summer of 1989). That means there is a specific progression for all of our features and your skiing; from the smallest Mini Features to the biggest Superpipe, our coaches will guide you through this terrain at your own pace to hot-step your progression and promote fun while doing so. We call the marriage of the people and our parks The Perfect Balance™ as it is designed specially to lead progression.
To really boil it down, in order to achieve The Perfect Balance™ Windells employs trained coaches (people pt. 1) to help show our amazing campers (people pt. 2) how to use our Private Terrain Parks (parks) to advance their riding at a specific and comfortable pace (progression).
Mathematically speaking, it looks like this, for those “numbers” people:
Windells x (People + Parks + Progression) = The Perfect Balance™

How Long Are Your With Your Coach?
Campers are with their specific coach and group until 1:30*, and then finish the day on hill by choosing any of the offered daily afternoon clinics… Everyday we offer optional freeski, Lap Park, jump, rail and halfpipe clinics for all abilities. Each session there will be optional clinics offered by coaches and Takeover™ Session Pros. How about a rail clinic with Khai Krepela, a halfpipe clinic with Torin Yater-Wallace, or a jump clinic with Alex Hall?!
*Unless scheduled for a photo/video shoot.
Looking for one-on-one coaching for your entire stay at Windells Camp? Getting undivided attention from a coach all session long is a sure-fire way to improve your riding. This option has limited availability (meaning it sells out), so book it early.
