Tim Windell is on our list of ‘Fathers of Snowboarding’ becasue he’s well regarded as the ‘Father’ of summer snowboarding up at Mt.Hood. Tim was a pro snowboarder for Sims Snowboards throughout the late 80’s to the early 90’s. In 1991 he placed 2nd in the world championships and in 89 and 90 he was ranked 2nd on the World Cup. Windells camp started in the early 1990’s and since then has expended into a massive campus, and awesome on hill facilities.
