Windells Gears Up for Summer 2008

Windells is gearing up for one of the best summers to date with a 380% above normal snow pack and over 36 feet of total snow accumulation this winter. Our private park on Mt. Hood received so much snow that it shattered a 50 year record which you will not want to miss.

Jason Legge, a pro snowboarder for Rossignol, Smith, Vans, Dakine, Atmosphere and Copper, has been promoted to Windells Head Digger. Jason plans to build some of the largest jumps Mt. Hood has seen to date. With Mack Dawg Productions(MPD) and others coming to film Sessions 1 and 2, you will without a doubt, see some amazing riding. Jason is bringing in his experienced Canyons park crew and an all-star line of pro snowboarders including: Jake Welch, JJ Thomas, Josh Sherman, Travis Kennedy, Eddie Wall, Chad Otterstrom, Luke Mitrani, Jack Mitrani, Jonas Carlson, Kyle Clancy, Scotty Arnold, Mason Aguirre, Scotty Lago, Molly Aguirre, Drew Fuller, Charlie Morace, Nick Dirks, Mark Frank Montoya, Jake Blauvelt, Kevin Pierce, Alex Sherman, Danny Davis, The Dingo, Danny Kass, Todd Richards,
Lane Knaack, JP Tomich, Madison Ellsworth, Kelly Clark, Hannah Teeter, Seth Westcott, Shaun Palmer, Nate Holland, Lyndsey Jacobelis, Louie Vito, and many more.

Austin Stevens is the owner of Saga Outerwear, a grass roots freeski clothing company. He will be head of the freeski program at Windells this summer. We are stoked Austin joined the Windells family this year. Austin brings an enormous amount of knowledge to Windells Ski Program and has been bringing many new improved changes to the already progressive program. Austin has been hard at work putting together one of the best coaching rosters to date: Tanner Hall, Pep Fujas, Chris Benchentler, Mike Hornbeck, Tom Wallisch, Tim Durtschi, Liam Downey, Willey Miller, Sean Field, Sammy Carlson, Phil Balanger and many more.

Windells is excited to have Jamie Weller back as the Director of Skateboarding. This winter, Jamie has been building urban style features throughout the campus, adding to the already amazing indoor skate park and 6,000 square feet of concrete to the campus. Silas Baxter-Neal was skating 4/20/08 and calls BOB, "The best indoor skateparkark" in the Northwest! Windells is looking forward to skating with: Mikey Burton, Daewon Song, Jeron Wilson, Mike Taylor, Torey Pudwill, Lamare Hemmings, Chet Childress, Micah Hollinger, and the Krux team.
