Timberline 7/26/10

26 Jul, 2010

We’re already down to the last two sessions before Windells ends…summer has flown by with the amount of fun I’ve been having. The session 6 campers arrived today so it was a perfect day to head up to the slopes to just freeride without either camp operating.  Timberline is a public mountain but the camps have their own private parks however just lapping the chairlifts and public park are enough for a amazing day of shredding.

Today was so much fun for just making the mountain a funfest.  Dillon and I spent most of the day riding together, getting in some fun slow laps ollie’ing rocks, snow chunder, bonking fences…whatever we felt like.

Towards the bottom of Palmer was a snow pile that you could gap so the guys tried their hand at getting some on it.

For the last lap we headed through the public park which is still going strong right next to Magic Mile.

Now it’s off to Windells Camp to welcome the session 6 campers!  Seriously what a fun day of shred, bummed that there’s only a couple more weeks left of this.  Also stoked to meet Ben and Darlene in the parking lot, they read the blog and it was rad to end the day saying hi to people stoked on the shred.
