Timberline & Windells Camp 6/8/10

08 Jun, 2010

It’s hard to believe that I’m really at Timberline and Windells Camp snowboarding, but every day I wake up, get my gear on and head back to the mountain to capture snowboarding in it’s most core form…snowboarders who ride in the summer.  Today was a action packed camera day, I spent most of the day getting photos and action from inside the Windells camp.

One of the perks of being at Mt Hood in the summer is the assortment of pros that come through to get their summer shred on, each session there are new pros arriving at camp and pros working for camp all summer.  Today I spent the morning with Brett Esser who rides for 686, Omatic, Nike 6.0, Smith Optics, Breckenridge, Pac Sun USASA team and me glad.

The big jump line at Windells is at the top of camp and so I started off the morning to get some shots there with a couple of the riders

It was a beautiful day for halfpipe riding so after a lunch break, we hit up the Windells pipe for a session.

After the morning session at 1pm was the Rome Giveaway Contest with Johnny Lazz.  There is so much free swag given out at camp that it’s hard to not leave without something especially if you participate in the contests on-snow.

The contest was on the small jump features, riders had to prove their skills with tricks called out by Lazz.  There was an assortment of grabs, 180’s, switch tricks and bigger spins to determine the winners.

For the afternoon I met up with Tim Humphreys who is in town for session 1, he sessioned a couple features for me so we could get shots to put up here!  Tim is sponsored by Sessions, Flow, NXTZ, Neff and 542 East.

Tim was a trooper hiking features to get a couple shots

It was an awesome bluebird day on the mountain and stoked to get some shots of pros that are at session 1 on the jumps, pipe and rails at camp.  There’s such a variety set up for any level so the whole park is a lot of fun.

After the day on slopes, I joined the adult campers for Taco Tuesday at the Shack.  It was the perfect way to end the day with $2 taco’s and a lot of water.
