Welcome to Windells … Funnest place on Earth
With Snowboard, Skateboard, Freeski and BMX camps all year long!
What is Windells?
It’s natural, year-round snow in the mountains and a non-stop, camp fun experience. It’s a place to go huge!
Windells Camp Mission: To provide a safe, fun learning environment for all campers to unlock their full potential, regardless of age, gender or ability.
It’s a place to meet new friends and rub elbows with your favorite pros. A place where beginners and experts fine-tune their skills. An innovative assortment of snowboard, skateboard, freeski and BMX parks with super pipes, rails and jumps.
With guidance from the very best counselors, coaches and pros, campers live their dreams in a positive, progressive, encouraging environment. Programs incorporate more on-hill coaching, more off-hill activities and better supervision than any action sports camp.
Windells is the place to experience mind-blowing powder days and endless fun runs. The enormous canyons of Mt. Hood Meadows provides natural halfpipes, wind lips, tree rides and cornice drops all over the mountain. It’s why you see Meadows terrain in all of Mack Dawg’s films. Spring is notorious for big dumps followed by bluebird days, it’s the best time to go build a booter. The winter coaching squad knows all the lines and will take you on expeditions that will leave you breathless.
Winter gives campers a chance to experience Windells in a more personal setting to see how the local crew really rides. With groups of 25 to 40 coed campers, Windells feels like home. Last winter, more girls attended camp then boys.
BOB is open every evening for campers to jump on the trampolines, do transfers into the foam pit, or use one of two launch ramps to propel yourself into the foam pit either skateboarding or riding BMX. Our private demo center is stocked full with all the latest snowboard, freeski, skateboard and BMX equipment for 2010. Demo privileges are included with camp.
“Because winter camps are so much smaller, the entire staff gets to know every kid,” says year-round local Katia. “Everybody knows everybody, so it’s like a little club.”
Mt. Hood Meadows and Timberline Ski Area are home to some of the most advanced riding in the world. Their parks are among the best in the country, featuring a fully lighted park and pipe at night and multiple high speed quads. You’ll be riding on your very first night at Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, America’s largest night skiing resort. Windells has a working relationship with all three local areas to ensure the best riding experience possible.
