Session 3 at Windells Camp is underway and another day on the slopes at our private camp. At lunch time we came across Corbin’s group of adult campers who wanted to session the flat box for the afternoon and that’s where we met 18 year old Camper of the Day Kim. Kim is from New Hampshire and was working to get her tricks back after an injury this winter.

Why did you choose to come to Windells Camp?

Kim: I got in an accident early season last year so I was out for 7 months. So I’m just trying to get to how I was before. It was a really bad concussion out in Colorado. I go to Okemo Mountain School and we go out to Colorado for training, I just hit my head and was in the hospital for a while.

How does it feel to be back on snow?

Kim: It’s kind of frustrating cause I can’t get all my tricks back right away like I thought I would. But it’s a good experience cause now I know what happens when I don’t snowboard for a while.

What tricks are you working on this session?

Kim: I’m trying to get all my tricks back but mainly frontboards and then working on 1’s and 3’s on little jumps.

How do you like the coaching so far?

Kim: Corbin is my coach. The first day was a little iffy since he wasn’t feeling well but after that it’s been really good. The video review has been awesome, I love it cause i’m like a visual learner.

How’s the adult camp experience?

Kim: A lot more freedom. We got out to dinner, watch movies, pretty much just hang out. The other adult campers are fun, we all hang out.

Have you done any on-campus activities.

Kim: Not yet but I want to at some point.

Congrats to Kim for sticking it out today on snow and being Camper of the Day! Stay tuned for more campers this summer as we find ski, snowboard and skate campers to update on the windells blog!
