MT. HOOD, OR – March 2010 – Windells Easter Camp 2010 is quickly filling, but there are a few slots left for snowboarders, skiers and skateboarders. With tons of new snow falling on Mt Hood right now, shredding at Windells private-park will be epic for this year’s Easter Camp.

The Easter Camp 2010 session runs from April 3rd to April 10th – and camp sizes are limited to increase interaction with instructors. Windells gives campers access to natural snow year-round, and will add its second tow lift at Timberline in time for summer.  When campers aren’t ripping it up on the slopes or in the halfpipe, they’re having non-stop fun on the Windells campus.  With skateboard, BMX and freeride facilities, the 12,000 square foot Building Out Back (B.O.B), paintball, movie rooms, the Super Awesome Information Game Lounge and a bunch of other activities, there’s always something to do.  The Easter Camp is the last multi-day camp before Windells transitions into their Summer Camps in early June.

Tuition for the Snowboard and Ski Camps are $1,249 for overnighters, and $724 for day campers.  This includes lift tickets, in-depth instruction, food, prizes, transportation, supervision, video review, camp activities and more.  The Skateboard Camp is $700 for overnighters and $500 for day campers, and does not include lift tickets.

Windells alumni have won 23 Olympic medals including five at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, B.C.  Shaun White, Louie Vito, Hannah Teter, and Kelly Clark are among the many current Olympians who have honed their skills on the slopes of Mt. Hood as a Windells camper. To register, go to <> .

Founded in 1988 by 9-time National Champion and 2-time Vice World Champion snowboarder Tim Windell, Windells has been a world leader in action sports for the past two decades. The camp’s goal is to not only improve kids’ skills on the slopes and on the street, but also create a fun and safe place for kids to creatively express themselves through sports. >From building permanent half-pipes, cheese wedge jumps to creating new moves and fighting scoring regulations in competitions, Windells has been a pioneer in action sports. Windells is also the world’s only privately owned campus and features a permanent, year round half-pipe and ski runs as well as BMX dirt bike paths, indoor skate park with foam pit and on-site housing and accommodations for campers. For those who have been there, Windells is known as the funnest place on earth.
