Watch: Closing out #FreeskierWeek at Windells with rail jams and dance parties
Video: Closing out #FreeskierWeek at Windells
Bing, bang, boom, Windells’ week one is done, and we’re thrilled to have been a part of it. Despite a less than stellar hand served up by Mother Nature, the good times were rolling from pick-up to drop-off, and this was especially evident throughout our final day on-snow, which saw a great deal of dance-partying despite the wet, foggy setting. Said it before and I’ll say it again: just mixing up the proverbial lemonade.
And with a crew like Christensen, Fostvedt and Herman in tow, what else would one expect? I can’t thank that trio enough for their go-getter attitudes and for going the extra mile to put smiles on the campers’ faces. That’s what we’re in it for, after all.
Between the fun-filled adventures on-snow, our rowdy expedition to Hood River, the shopping spree in Portland, the other shopping spree in Portland, the numerous group activities and beyond, it was a week we’ll remember for a long time to come.
The summer ahead is bright for Windells-bound skiers. The snow levels are high, the “diggers” have been working their asses off, and two private rope tows are servicing a lane packed to the brim with jibs and jumps.
Stay tuned for photos, coming soon. Furthermore, be sure to follow along over the course of the next two months as we’ll continue to highlight the best of each session at Windells via recap videos and extensive photo galleries.
Final thoughts: I’d like to extend a huge, huge thanks to Jason Arens for serving as our gracious host—cleaning up after us, chauffeuring us, assisting with logistics, etc. You’re the man. Thanks also to the many brands who were kind enough to provide us with swag to dish out to the kiddos: Oakley, Scott, ON3P, Phunkshun, Dakine, Full Tilt and anon. Not quite sure how the campers will manage to fit all of that loot into their luggage, but I’m sure they’ll find a way…
