Timberline & Windells Camp 7/8/10

08 Jul, 2010

We had high winds the past couple days which means that instead of white snow we get dirt covered snow to ride down but the actual snowpack is still holding up.  Each day we strap in at the magic mile chairlift and can ride both magic mile and palmer chairlifts.  The warm weather finally arrived, delivering 90+ degree down in the valley and still very hot up on the mountain.

It is the Technine session at Windells right now so the Technine crew were helping build the Dream Feature to dial it in.

I spent the morning making some laps with the adult group and then met up with the Camper of the Day from coach Ocho’s group for the afternoon to get some shots of him.  His name is Philippe and he’s a 16 year old skier from Quebec who was charging the rails today and getting some bag jump time in.

For the evening it was time to head into camp with the Windells Academy kids for dinner and play time on campus.  I ended up sitting in the grass with skate coach Lisa just enjoying the cold grass underneath since the weather has been so hot lately!
