Windells Snowboard Camp: Mount Hood, Oregon

Windells’ private campus boasts the largest skatepark in the Northwest and girls’ skate clinics run every afternoon to take you from first push to kickflip in a matter of days. Behind the skate set up, there’s a new dry slope and Bag Jump to dial in that front three before taking it to the hill. Cool down post-riding in an outdoor yoga class or design your own tshirt with help from pros like Molly Aguirre and Izzy Lalive. Once a session, Burton swings by with their infamous “Blender Challenge”, involving leftovers from the Windells kitchen, a race around camp and, you guessed it, a blender. It’s worth stomaching: the winning lady receives a brand new Burton snowboard (and a handful of Tums).

First introduced by Wham-O in 1961, the slip ‘n slide may be the simplest way to have fun on a hot day. On the Windells campus, girls shed their snowboard boots in favor of swimsuits to cool off after riding. Photo: Windells
