Mt. Hood, Oregon is home to a lot of summer ski and snowboard camps, but none compare to Windells. With the largest private lane on Hood and the biggest skate park in the Pacific Northwest, Windells manages to keep every session fresh with new events and new parks.

Yes, that is a Bag Jump made for the pipe. Photo: Darcy Bacha

The pipe got quite a bit of use this session from numerous teams that showed up along with pros and campers alike. Despite a few days of bad weather, campers managed to reach their goals and then had two of the sunniest days yet to continuously stomp what they had learned.

Skating doesn’t get much better eh? Photo: Darcy Bacha

The Windells Campus was popping off as per usual with numerous activities and skating to fill the time while not on hill. Capture the Swag gives campers an opportunity to get a lot of free stuff, but not without making it to the other side.
