PARKS & PIPES
We at Windells are skiers, and our Private Parks™ are built with that in mind: from the shapes of our jumps, to the way we set our rails, Windells is built for shredders like YOU. Our park is maintained by our crew of Diggers and crafted to help you learn, have fun, and if need be, to learn how to have fun!

THE LARGEST SUMMER PARK IN NORTH AMERICA
More tricks have been learned, invented and enjoyed on this stretch of snow than any other on Earth. From the Line Skis pro team sliding some of the first ever rails to Tom Wallisch's motionless zero spin, our Main Park™ is home to legendary tricks and people. Although you can access our Main Park™ via the high-speed quad, maximize your hits per day by riding our two private rope-tows. Working on that one rail? Some folks even like to hike specific features. At the end of the day, no matter how you choose get up the hill, you’re gonna have a blast on the way down.
It’s Super. It’s a Pipe. It’s a Superpipe!
Our Superpipe is the only pipe of its size (Olympic 22 ft.) and quality anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere during the months of June & July. Olympic teams from all over the world come to shred it every summer. And this beast doesn’t just run for a couple weeks—it lasts all summer long!
Summer home to the US Freeski Team, Windells’ Superpipe was also ridden by the Canadian, French, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, South Korean, and Australian National Teams as they prepared for the 2014 and 2018 Winter Olympic Games. But, don’t be intimidated, these Olympians are always more than happy to help you get to the lip of the pipe or learn a new trick!
MINI PIPE, BIG FUN!
Halfpipes aren’t just for X-Games superstars and Olympic Medalists... that why we have "The People’s Pipe”, built for everyone else. Our Mini Pipe is 16 -18ft tall, soft, and seems to have a spell cast on it which helps you land any trick you try. No matter who you are, cruise in Windells’ Mini Pipe and have a blast. Slashes, handplants, old school grabs . . . do whatever you like. It’s easy and it’s fun.
It’s like jumping into a giant pillow!
Not just for backflips and triple corks, our BAGJUMP™ is perfect for getting the feeling of being in the air without the consequences of a hard landing. Because our 50’x50′ BAGJUMP™ is so soft and absorbs so much energy, you’ll gain confidence in your air-awareness which you can quickly take to real jumps when you're ready.
And you know what? It’s just plain fun to ride!
Thanks to the variety of jumps we build in our park, you can learn your first grab on a five-foot table top jump, hit our medium jump line, or watch one of our Takeover Pros™ float a perfect cork 7 on the 70 ft "Big Jump" (or maybe you'll send it yourself!). No matter what level you’re at, there’s a jump with your name all over it.
To top it off, unlike any other park, our jumps are hand raked 2-3 times each day by our crew of Diggers to make sure they ride as well at the end of the day as they did when the sun came up.
The secret to getting better at anything is having fun and doing it over and over again.
Your great grandpa who rode Windells in the 1990’s will think you’ve got it easy nowadays with our two private rope tows. “Back in my day we had to hike for every bit of airtime . . . . and we liked it!” Or did he ever tell you that he had to walk in the snow, up-hill, 2 miles both ways to and from school? Well, ask any camper from before 2008 and they’ll tell you the same thing about riding in our park. We used to hike everything.
That was then; today all you have to do is grab a handle and not let go until you get to the top to shred the jumps, rails, and pipes over and over . It’s easy, makes the park more fun, and saves time, letting you ride the park as many times as you have energy for. Now that’s how you get better at skiing!
