Timberline & Windells Camp 6/27/10

27 Jun, 2010

Today was the first day of on-snow for session 3 and still insane to believe that I’m at Windells Camp all summer to partake in the most shredding and fun for months.  I carpool up to the mountain each day with my skier gals Dania and Keri so we can get up early for laps through the public park at Timberline before hitting the private Windells park.  It was another amazing summer bluebird day of shred and stoked the rainy weather seems to have gone away.

One of the perks of each session is the assortment of features that get switched up from session to session.  Here’s a look at some of the newest features to the Windells park.

Super long rail

I saw that Amanda from Burton was at Hood and really wanted to meet up with her, she does a fantastic job with Burton’s social media and it was rad to see that I was right behind her in the Palmer lift line this morning so we got a shot together.

The morning was my ride time which was perfect since I lapped Windells to public park runs but the afternoon was time with the skiers to get the blogging for Windells which was also a blast!

I also got to watch the Rome riders at camp charging the rails, it’s been rad to meet LNP in person and hang out with him during camp since I’ve watched his riding for years.  Plus rad that Ron and Cavan are on the slopes getting content for Rome.

I met up with ski coach Collin Collins to get one of his campers for Camper of the Day, Kolton is from Idaho and was charging the jump line at Windells.

After dinner, I got talked into getting back on the skateboard to learn how to ride the mini vert ramp at camp.  It was for the Skate like a Girl sesh and was sooo much fun!

Rome held a game of knockout that got quite the audience and applause tonight

Stoked for another beautiful day on snow tomorrow!
