Windells or Woodward at Copper
Which camp is better it's a lot of money and I wanna make sure I get the best for my money but I also wanna make new buds and have a great time
Don't know anything about copper but windless was the best week of my life.

woodward has a better indoor facility, windells has a better on snow park. it depends on what you want to work on.
Honestly? Depends on what you're really looking for. I was a camper at Windells and now have been a coach at Woodward for 2 years so here's the run down:
Woodward has a SICK summer park, and its super underrated. Sure, the jumps and size of features are not like Windells but it's still real sick for Colorado in the summer. First 2 sessions are the times to go because the 3rd jump is biggest. We are also getting a magic carpet for the summer that will be open all 9 sessions for hot laps. In the afternoon, you can hike the rail park at the base of Copper which always has around 10 rails. Indoor barn at copper is the best for tramps, foam pits and hitting the jumps on roller skis into the foam pit. Last thing: CHEAPER than windells
Windells is more of a summer camp vibe, on a closed campus. You will have a lot more freedom to do whatever you want and not stay with your counselor/ coach all the time. The scene at Hood in the summer is also DOPE. I also kinda think a higher skill level of skiers tend to go to hood in the summer, and I remember Windells didn't have as many younger kids (9-12 year olds) like woodward has coming to camp. Also weather can be sketchy in the summer, I went session 3 and we had 2 weather days because the lift couldn't run in the fog and rain. Still was one of the best weeks of my life, so much fun and so many friends.
Hopefully this helps you decide!! Feel free to reach out with any additional questions.
