Checking In: Freeskier Week is going off at Windells Camp
We’re two days into Session 6 at Windells Camp, otherwise known as Freeskier Week. A handful of our staffers are on-site, along with our crew of guest pros: Kolby Ward, Matt Walker, Stephen Smith and Charlie Lasser, plus last-minute tagalongs Torin-Yater Wallace and Aiden Sheehan. Our goal this week: To enjoy Windells’ amenities and to show campers a damn good time while we’re at it.
In our two days here, we’ve enjoyed kick-ass times on the glacier—shredding Windells’ awesome features, learning new tricks, busting piñatas and capturing some great video/photo content (coming soon). This afternoon, we even hosted an on-snow boogie board race, the winner of which received a custom pair of Folsom Skis, adorned with Freeskier and Windells branding—one of three pairs we had made and just a few of the many prizes we’re dishing out to campers this week. Back at the Windells campus we’ve joined campers on the tramps, in the skateparks, in games of knock-out and also our own creation, “double baseball.” Picture this: two pitchers, back to back, pitching to two different batters, at the same time, with batters running the same set of bases, in opposite directions. In one word: carnage.
We’re looking forward to many great days ahead. Joining us on the glacier are pros including Sammy Carlson, ABM, Noah Wallace, Reed Lewis, LJ Strenio, Khai Krepela, John Kutcher, Joey Van Der Meer, Matt Heffernan and many more, along with coaches John Ware, Tim McChesney, Tim Gage, Nicky Keefer, Jason Arens and more. Back on campus, we’ve got a handful of additional activities lined up including a poster signing, a slideshow and photo workshop with Nate Abbott, and more. Onward and upward!
Stay tuned as we’ll be churning out some great content later in the week. For now, be sure to follow @freeskiermagazine and @windellscamp on Instagram, and catch a glimpse of the action as it’s happening.
