HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SNOWBOARDING?

I have been snowboarding for six years. It is my second time at camp, I came two years ago.

HOW DID YOU GET THAT SWEET BONFIRE JACKET YOU ARE WEARING?

Well, I did a frontside boardslide into regular. It was a zeach contest [one of Windells' daily on hill activities]. It was so fun, I was so happy. All of the other girls were doing such good stuff and then I got the frontside boardslide into regular–I learned it this morning!

WHAT’S COOL ABOUT BEING A GIRL CAMPER AT WINDELLS?

You get extra attention and are noticed because there’s not as many girls as boys. It’s definitely a big deal. You get a Betty Rides night and boys don’t get that. You get a lot of attention and cool activities because there aren’t that many girls.

FAVORITE THING YOU’VE DONE AT CAMP?

My favorite thing is just riding every day! White water rafting was really fun, too.

HAVE YOU MADE FRIENDS AT CAMP?

Definitely! I came here alone this year and two years ago I came with my brother. I flew alone. It was a little scary because I came alone, but I met a lot of girls and nice people. My impression of camp is awesome. Totally great, such an experience.
